Unhappy do you think that the wind picks up with the tide?

I think that the wind picks up with the tide (coming from low to high tide).
and this last month it's been very strange that there will be 12-14kts SE in the morning ..the atlantis flag will be standing straight ..i'll drive all the way to blue hill and there will be 8kts.
what do you guys think?
leave nothing but wake take nothing but photos

I don't know if it's the tide. To me it can also be some sort of thermal. It's not the first time I hear that where the wind blows on-shore is weaker than on the other side of the island. I think it might have been Aruba...but not sure.

Anyway, I was shocked to hear that Friday was not even rideable, I swear from my office it did look windy.
Golf anyone ??

Its not a case of "believing"- I've not witnessed it in a bunch of years sailing.

I've also seen the wind die (by coincidence) when the tide comes in as many times as it picked up.

2-3 feet difference in the atmosphere isn't going to make any real difference.
