```The reason that the data is hard to see is that one entry (65.9)
dominates the picture -- and this visualization is actually appropriate
if this is really the case.  If you want to see the data other than the
dominate value there are several possibilities, for instance:

a)  Modify the data so that the dominant value is replaced by some
maximum value
b)  Adjust the scale of the chart to show the interesting values

SectorChart[Table[{10, i}, {i, Min[5, #] & /@ PadRight[data, 36]}],
PolarAxes -> True,
PolarTicks -> {Table[{(i + 5) \[Degree], (i) \[Degree]}, {i, 0, 350,
10}], Range[0, 5, 1]},
TicksStyle -> Directive[Black, 8],
SectorOrigin -> {95 \[Degree], -1},
PolarGridLines -> {Range[0 \[Degree], 360 \[Degree], 10 \[Degree]],
Automatic},
PolarAxesOrigin -> {Pi/2, 5},
ChartStyle ->
Directive[EdgeForm[{Thin, White}],
FaceForm[{RGBColor[0, .2, .5, .5]}]]]
