I came in apparently just minutes from when this happened to Sam (one of the cars) and a foreign gal who has been coming there lately. Whoever said the Richmond police don't respond well is incorrect. I spoke to the first officer on the scene and he was there just minutes after one of the car's alarms went off.

We've have been sailing Marina Bay for a good 20 years and I don't ever recall this kind of thing happening (which doesn't mean it hasn't happened, I just don't remember). I think we will all be on the lookout now for a silver Nissan and that's good.

My advice - hide your valuables somewhere not so obvious or just bring your driver's id. Marina is a great spot and we should not let this stop us from sailing there. Rather - let's nail this mother fucker!

The observation that it happens during the week and toward late afternoon is a good one and makes sense.

WindDog - I don't mind getting around all the poop at Isabel (although I wish the owners would clean up after their children), but when one of the owners was talking to me last week and both of his dogs pee'd on my sail for attention while we were talking - that was just too much!

Pray for wind.

Time to make a sail out of doghide.

Guess not. Will result in just more peeing.

Or sniffing of the clew.

Where is TP? Is this the Ashby launch or somewhere different?

TP is Toll Plaza (by the Bay Bridge toll plaza). This is a super bummer because they seem to be targeting windsport folks. I read the thread on the kiteboard forum and they are hitting the toll plaza, Pt Emery, Marina Bay...

Got one for a .44? The .357 is a little light for this side of the bay. As far as the syringes, it's nice to be able just pick one up when you need it.

A couple of years ago a bunch of theves pulled up all the copper wires that were connected to all the lights along the path to sell for scraps. So this isn't the first time thefts has happened. The Richmond police does care, but really guys keep in mind that it is RICHMOND. How many shootings do they have there? The cops get tied up taking care of "high priority crimes" and car breakins aren't high on the list. So give them a hand and get involved with some "community policing" and try to spot those SOB's....
