Thanks to everone who replied to my NW sailing question. I have another:
I usually sail off my in-laws house in the middle of IOP, but have had
some great sessions with great company in NE fall/winter winds at the
Station 28-29 area -- the wind is more sideshore and the sandbar throws
up some better-behaved waves than IOP. I haven't been there for a year or
so, and stopped to look at the lauch a couple of weeks ago. The beach has
eroded back to the houses and homeowners have built seawalls and thrown up
rip rap and cement piles to break wave energy. The shoreline looks
horible and dangerous.
What's going on? Is this legal? Is it safe to sail there with all this
***in the water? Is there another launch nearby to the south where the
beach has been accreting? I hope it's not another good launch gone bad.
Thanks for any information.
