From my last trip in Monterey and only my fourth time using the Kayak Sailor, using my paddle to turn would slow my boat down. I knew it was time to invest in a rudder.
With rudder installed, I was looking forward to this trip. Only thing was there was a lot of things happening in the Bay Area that would make things difficult.
My route was to go through the Golden Gate Bridge and into Tomales Bay. There were two things happening in San Francisco; Bay to Breakers and the Amgen Tour. I wasn't worried about the Bay to Breakers because their route would go underneath 19th Avenue. I was worried about the Amgen Tour.
I missed getting to the bridge by about 5 minutes! About 20 cars in front of me, there was a police car slowing down traffic going to the bridge.
I knew from then on that this is going to be one of those days.
