perhaps they've moved it to Venus, since its reading 709 degrees there. on the plus side a "day" of windsurfing on Venus is equivalent to 243 Earth Days. don't know if they have wind on Venus. Could someone do an "onsite" and let us know?

Can't do the maintainance for you but.....
R&G sensor reads low, by about 3-5mph on the high end.
Ignore the lows, usually the highs would be the average.
Then again, it's only sailable on WNW or NW winds, without much NNW component (go N 4 miles). Tomales gotta be high, as Bodega, clear on the coast and NW trades.
These anomalies happen for Angel also, so not limited to R&G.

I've similar anomalies in the past at the old Point Conception buoy, to include the West Santa Barbara buoy, where the swell size was shown to be over 30 feet.
