I believe two windsurfers and another random citizen were victims of smash and grab break ins at Shimada Park about 4:00 pm Tuesday. Apparently two low lives (I understand to be African Americans in a silver Nissan) smashed the side windows on two cars parked in the prime parking spots and one in the back parking lot.

I like that spot because it has a nice rigging area and a barefoot launch...too bad it's also frequented by greedy local asshole shithead scumbags. Of course, the Richmond policía are completely unresponsive... I guess there's little we can do except keep an eye on each other.

Too bad. Most people I've met at the park are pretty nice. This is the first incident I've heard of sailing here for a number of years. Hope it's an isolated event.

Yeah, Sunday we sailed there and the prime spot, on the left, nearest PI, had auto glass from the driver's side all over the ground. We looked around, asked a few other windsurfers about it, and went out.
Hope Rob, who shows up early there, is watching.

Yeah, always listen to your inner voice.
I usually sail close to the launch every inside run, but it'd take me at least a full minute to get to the stairs, by with time smash and grab is long gone.
We just gotta watch out for the next guy, try to be nice to the fisherman...good luck... and if we have time, watch out for and stick around till everyone get's in.
