Lost at Sea

Report I saw on Cruising World site suggested the boat was a Newport 30. (A 22'' boat would have been more likely to trailer.) A J/35 was capsized and sunk off SFO in a day race within the past year when it got caught in waves cresting in the shallows near a govenment bouy turning mark. With onshore breeze & waves running the full width of the Pacific, the whole CA coast can become a horrific lee shore.
