136 - Had to be in town today so went to the OSO bridge and sailed the bay.  It was fairly breezy and rigged about right with consistent planing but sometimes a little slow outside in the NAS wind shadow and inside close to shore.  Sailed about as far out as ever, at least since the Hobie days when we  almost made the ship channel at Ingleside.  Well upwind of the closest platform and past a Danger Spoil Bank marker and a single well marker which I have never seen before.  Also those cane markers at about the last sandbar and further inside near the bridge and they are hard to see so if I ever hit one without getting impaled all are going to be uprooted and set them adrift.  Just a moderate chop/swell made it easy sailing but still missed a few jibes on the outside.
