The Bay Conservation & Development Commission is mapping different uses on the Bay and wants to map primary windsurf and kitesurf areas. This can be advantageous in that it will put them automatically on alert that we should be part of the process where a project would impact our areas. It also could be used to explore impacts that we might have on other areas (e.g. wetlands, preserves), so we don't want to overstate the area that we use.

I'd love it if those of you who track your sessions on GPS could send me aerials of the sites you use with the tracks that are most representative of the sailing area used by most of the sailors. I've discussed the idea that we want to map an area that includes all areas used by 90% of the users because it isn't really representative of our regular/typical use to include every place anyone sails since a small number of racers visit parts of the Bay where most people never sail and people with GPS may be more likely to explore and see where they can get to.

I can get you aireials(sp) from Crissy, Berkeley, Pt Isabel/Marina Bay, Candlestick pt., PaloAlto, Coyote, Seaport Blvd Business Park, and Haskins.
