Damn I didn't even think of going all the way around to OB - that's gnarly.

Baker Beach very often doesn't have wind and no way to get off the beach back out into wind since its usually dead onshore. Wouldn't recommend it.

After the captains epic journey I was thinking Crissy to 3rd. ;). I'm thinking we'd need boat support.

That's one hell of a starboard tack all the way to OB ,.
