The Bodega sensor reads totally dead for any wind with some S on it and
Tomales doesn't help much either. The PA buoy is helpful. We musta just
missed you as we sailed the early, high tide shift at Doran. Even though
the surf was small we witnessed a mast-snapping two days ago in similar
sized surf at the low tide (same launch site but the wind was due east and
your jibe mark was Bodega rock). Bodega has had some good wind this last
weekl, we've hit it three times in the last seven days and maybe more tomorrow!
