Was there yesterday. The life guard told me I had to sail down with the kiters
at the far west end of the beach. Cannot sail where we usually do , to the right of the life guard chair. Plovers would be upset !
He was sympathetic , and I realize he's just doing his job, but this has gotten
out of control. They take a little more beach, and time out of the season each year. Windsurfing death , by inches.

windsurfing access is from the west end jetty with the kiters currently, as posted in bright orange signage at chair 8 and explained thoroughly by the gate attendant. this does not change when there are no gate attendants to explain or lifeguards to enforce. the road is currently open to the end of the beach because the plovers in the vicinity of chair 8 lost the chicks. the road will close again when they renest until new chicks can fly. the process is dragged out by commotion in the vicinity of chair 8.

Barriers are down. It's just like it used to be, sail west of chair 8, which is a bit west of the bathroom . Also keep west ( right as facing the water) of the swimming bouys
