White shark spotted at Sherman Island this morning.

Sheriff said strong wind and swell pushed it from the bay.

Signs have been posted "Entering water not advised"

Owner of the sail boat said something attacked his engine and disabled his ability to stay off the shore causing his unexpected beaching.

I can confirm this. Here is some GoPro footage that some fisherman took yesterday less than 1 mile from the Sherman launch:

It would have been so awesome to bring a radio controlled shark fin to Santa Cruz after that got posted.
