Didn't look like it was blowing much (maybe 10-15kts) ...
It was a pretty typical spring afternoon here. Where I was, the breeze was 15 - 20, with gusts to 25 (checked not longer after the accident when I heard the news). BTS is quite right in his observations from the Richmond side - the breeze would have been lower there and building steadily as you move in the direction of Golden Gate. It was about high tide and there would not have been a lot of wind against tide effect.
Artemis was on the north side of Treasure Island. The wind strength there would have been between the strength at Richmond and the stronger winds out towards Golden Gate. As I write this - four hours after the accident - it is averaging 15 on the Berkeley Circle with higher gusts. It has not built as much today as yesterday. I was out yesterday evening and there were gusts well above 25.
When all this happened today I was in my office. Didn't see any of it.
