FYI, Limantour road (to Tubamancha) is still closed 8-12 and 1-5 for road
work. There is an alternative, however: go to Drake's Beach and launch
in very nearly straight offshore wind, sail downwind to Tuba, and upwind
to get back. Sailing distance is the same, 2.5 miles to the center of the

Drawbacks are an extra 15 minutes of driving each way, gustier wind near
the cliffs, and upwind sailing at day's end. Pluses are the paved parking
lot CLOSE to the beach, a good cafe (I like the oyster samiches and salmon
burgers), and an outdoor shower!

See you there...?

Directions to Drake's Beach:
Stay on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard around the bottom of Tomales Bay,
through Inverness, over the ridge, past Johnson's Oyster farm, Past the
MCI antenna farm, past a buncha cows, left at the Drake's sign. Watch
out for hawks and coyotes.
