But more seriously, on south wind, I could imagine you could rig at the peer and work your way upwind?

I'm no santa cruz expert, but couldn't you just launch at cowell's and then kite upwind a bit. I'm assuming it was SE wind. Or isn't there a beach just west of steamer that you could launch.

You don't have to understand what the dog is saying, you just have to understand why he barked and that's my final hint
