#1 - Try not to get run over by a ferry.
#2 - If you know a windsurfer missing a mast extension left on the ramp about a week ago, have them contact me.
There are probably more tips, so feel free to add.

Re: #1 - Did not witness, but heard later that a highly skilled windsurf foiler got dumped in front of a ferry. Ferry slowed to a stop, and foiler swam like hell while his rig/board clunked off the hull. Foiler retrieved his rig, sailed back to the cove and was home in time for dinner.
Re: #2 - mast extension was left on the ramp on Sunday, 7/25/21. Been trying to reunite it with the sailor who forgot it in an apparent state of bliss due to the ebb. Laughing

Not many people left that meet that description. Glad no ferries or windfoilers were harmed
