Wyland’s Whale and Dolphin Adventure Art Lessons 2024 DANA POINT— Marine life artist

Wyland and Dana Wharf Whale Watching present Wyland’s Whale and Dolphin Adventure Art Lessons from Jan. 27 - April 27. Dana Whar f established Whale Watching in Orange County in 1971 and is endorsed by Wyland. The renowned artist found inspiration for his gray whale artwork during their migration to warmer waters in the winter. The experience inspired Wyland to develop the program “Art Lessons in the Wild” with Wyland’s Whale and Dolphin Adventures in partnership with Dana Wharf Whale Watching. This package for kids ages 12 and under includes an art lesson via video feed by Wyland and a free two-hour whale-watching adventure. Each child that participates (the cost is $15) will be entered in a contest to win prizes as well as a gift from Wyland just for entering. The 2024 Grand

Prize will be a framed and signed artwork by Wyland valued at up to $3,000. All children’s artwork will be judged by Wyland for a chance to win other prizes. Art lessons begin at 9 a.m. and the whale watching adventure begins at 10 a.m. The lesson is limited to 15 children, with the $15 fee to be donated to the Wyland Foundation. Additional whale watch tickets are $56 for adults and $39 for kids 12 and under not participating in the lesson (valid only on Saturdays at 9 a.m. and must be accompanied by a paid adult, two kids maximum per adult). The paid adult must be present for the art lesson and free whale watching. It is not applicable for discounts or promos. Dana Point is known as a landmark for whale sightings due to its weather, underwater canyons, shallow waters, large kelp beds and ecosystems. These optimal conditions enhance the chance to see the Gray Whales during migration. Enjoy this opportunity for your child to participate in a special art lesson and see majestic creatures in their natural environment.

Port vs. Left, Starboard vs. Right


The left side of a boat is called “port” due to maritime tradition and nautical conventions. An easy way to remember this is that there are four letters in both the word port and left; therefore, the port is on the left side of the boat. The term “port” has been used to refer to the left side of a ship for centuries. The origin of this convention is practical and historical. In the past, ships had a steering oar, often located on the vessel’s right or starboard side. To avoid damaging this steering oar, the ship would be docked on the left side, which then became known as the “port” side. This practice allowed a clear passage on the starboard side for loading and unloading cargo. Calling the right side of a boat “starboard” is also due to maritime t r a d it ion a nd h i s t or y. T he t er m “starboard” has its roots in Old English and Old Norse. Let’s circle back to the oar that was typically located on the right side of the

boat. That oar is also called a steering oar. The Old English term for this steering oar was “steorbord,” with “steer” referring to steering and “bord” to side. Over time, this term evolved into “starboard.” The use of “port” and “starboard” prov ides standardized and unambig uous references for navigation and com munic at ion on ships, helping to avoid conf usion bet ween the left and right sides of the vessel. “Por t” a nd “st a rboa rd” a re used universally in the maritime industry to ensure clear and consistent communication among sailors and ship personnel.

In response to shared concerns about the quality of the delivered material, the USACE is exploring a range of options and action plans for the way forward. The USACE is also seeking the expertise of its technical specialists at the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to optimize a suitable course of action for the city of San Clemente.

STATE/NATIONAL/ INTERNATIONAL America’s Boating Compass is Urging Sailors to Seek Vessel Safety Checks Before Boating Season A preseason ritual for many North American recreational boaters, Vessel Safety Checks have become part of the spring commissioning process. A ve ssel sa fet y check i nvolve s examining a boat’s equipment to ensure it meets the safety requirements and standards of relevant maritime authorities. These checks are conducted by qualified inspectors or members of organizations dedicated to boating safety, such as the United States Power Squadrons, America’s Boating Club and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Vessel exams from these agencies have been available at no cost for many years. Jeff McKinney, manager of the USPS VSC program, explained a vessel check, how it is conducted and what happens if you fail to pass. Vessel examiners are experienced boaters with specialized

training in vessel exam requirements and procedures. They are required to pass a strict test and complete a series of exams under the supervision of a certified examiner before performing safety checks on their own. During a vessel exam, examiners look for the required items the U.S. Coast Guard mandates on all recreational boats, from stand-up paddleboards to 65-foot yachts. If it floats, it can be checked. You can do a virtual VSC beforehand, which includes 15 required items plus a list of optional items. A vessel exam typically takes 40-60 minutes to complete. It allows you to revisit where your safety equipment is stored, what you have and whether anything needs replacing, like an outdated set of flares. You also can ask the volunteer vessel examiner about related items not on the list. When you request a VSC, include the boat’s location and the system will notify examiners within a 20-mile radius. An examiner will contact you for scheduling. Suppose your boat has everything needed to meet requirements. In that case, the vessel examiner will fasten a decal on your boat, denoting that your boat was equipped adequately during the Vessel Safety Check. If your boat doesn’t pass, it won’t receive a decal. However, you’ll be informed of what needs to be corrected to keep your boat and passengers safe. There’s no penalty or fine for not passing an exam. Once you’ve updated the safety deficiencies, you can request another exam. It is important to note that the Coast Guard can board your boat to conduct a Vessel Safety Check any time, even if it has a current decal. The Coast Guard often does this to train new personnel. You

could receive a citation or fine if your boat is boarded and deficiencies are found.

ABYC Sets a Date for Marine Service Technician Week The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) announced the 3rd annual “International Marine Service Technician Week,” scheduled for April 22-26. The week is dedicated to recognizing marine service professionals’ exceptional skills and commitment. “This is an excellent opportunity for the boating community to show appreciation for the technicians who keep boating safe, reliable and enjoyable,” stated Shannon Aronson, marketing director at ABYC. “Seeing businesses celebrate their team with photo sharing, special recognitions and events for staff is not only inspiring, but also a great way to highlight the importance and appeal of this career path.” Throughout the week, ABYC plans to spotlight technicians and organizations on social media, conduct daily technical challenges with prize rewards, and provide online educational opportunities.

ask a maritime attorney


By David Weil

California’s Boating and Fishing News

2C Can you explain the public trust doctrine DARK BKGND regarding long-term anchoring?


I am a liveaboard boater and I have lived at anchor in various ports up and down the west coast. It comes with a lot of logistical problems, starting with getting back and forth to the boat while it is at anchor, but I enjoy the freedom. I am in San Diego now, but I have run into a problem here. I anchored in an area with other recreational boats anchored nearby, but I was “asked” by Port of San Diego Harbor Police to leave because I did not have an anchoring permit. When I looked into this further, I learned that those permits only allow for short term (72 hour) anchoring and long-term anchoring is prohibited. I might be allowed a longer stay (90 days) if I can establish myself as a “cruiser,” but I would still need a permit and longer term liveaboard use is prohibited. This contradicts my understanding of the law on this issue, which is that the tidelands adjacent to the California coast are owned by the public and held in trust for the use of the public. What am I missing here? David Weil is the managing attorney at Weil & Associates (www. weilmaritime.com) in Seal Beach. He is certified as a Specialist in Admiralty and Maritime Law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization and a “Proctor in Admiralty” Member of the Maritime Law Association of the United States, an adjunct professor of Admiralty Law, and former legal counsel to the California Yacht Brokers Association.

ANSWER: Our reader is operating under a mistaken understanding BW of a legal concept known as the Public Trust Doctrine, and given his history of living aboard at anchor, I’m surprised that this is his first encounter with the authorities on this issue. Under the Public Trust Doctrine, each U.S. State is deemed to be a trustee of the tidal and submerged lands within its boundaries for the common use of the people, which means that title to lands under navigable waters up to the high-water mark is held by the state in trust for the people of that state. Under this public trust, a state’s title to its tidal and submerged lands is different from that of its dryland holdings, which may be sold or developed without any maritime Please see ATTORNEY, PAGE 7

restrictions. The tidal and submerged lands are held in trust for the people of the State for uses involving navigation, fishing, and waterborne recreation and commerce, free from obstruction or interference from private parties. Each state is free to manage its tidal and submerged lands as it sees fit, so long as the lands are generally used for maritime purposes that ultimately benefit the public. Some states, such as Florida, have chosen to retain a significant level of management of this resource at the State level by prohibiting local municipalities from enacting certain types of regulations. California takes a different approach to the management of the trust. The California State Lands Commission was formed in 1938 to manage the public trust. The legislature subsequently enacted a statute to delegate most of the management of tidal and submerged lands to local municipalities by conveying the public trust lands to cities, counties, and other governmental agencies, including several major ports. Granted lands are then monitored by the State Lands Commission to ensure compliance with the terms of the statutory grants, but the local authorities are otherwise in charge. The management of the tidal and submerged lands requires local authorities to adhere to the fundamental premise of the trust, which as noted above is to preserve the lands for the benefit of the public and for uses that are broadly related to maritime activities. The question of whether a particular activity is within this fundamental premise is often the subject of litigation between the State Lands Commission and various local municipalities and port and harbor districts. Regardless of the nature of the activity in question, it is important to distinguish between the use of trust lands by

a “member of the public” and use by the “public.” The fact that an individual may be a member of the public does not, by itself, mean that he or she is entitled to make use of that land. This brings us to our reader and his quest for a long term liveaboard anchorage for his boat in San Diego Bay. The Port of San Diego has a long history of disputes with boat owners concerning “public” anchorages. The Port is the local entity charged with managing tidal and submerged lands within most of San Diego Bay, and they have broad discretion to determine which uses provide the most benefit to the public. The premise of the public trust doctrine does include “navigation” within the list of authorized public uses, and the designation of certain areas within a harbor as recreational vessel anchorages will certainly be characterized as the regulation of navigation. But the anchoring of one particular boat will be deemed to be for the private benefit of the boat owner rather than the “public,” in which case the Port is justified in regulating or prohibiting the activity. A boat owner with a specific question about a specific anchorage should first contact the local harbor police or port district, but if questions remain, he or she should retain an attorney experienced in land use law for more information about their specific case.

Part 1: Down Baja on Your Own?

Tips for DIY Southbound Buddy Boaters

And 2024 is likely to see the last Baja Ha Ha sailboat cruise to Los Cabos by marking its 30th anniversary. The popular group cruise was founded in 1994 by San Francisco publisher Richard Spindler. Together, these two supportive groups have over the years launched about 10,000 recreational boaters - mainly from the U.S. and Canada - into tropical cruising adventures, by first ushering them safely (usually) down the rugged outside of the Baja Peninsula, where yacht services are so scarce. Both these U.S. groups’ voyages into Mexico have always enjoyed overflowing participant interest; waiting lists are already forming, just in case. The CUBAR and Ha Ha have generated lucrative sponsorships in both countries with local, national and international companies. Financially, they’ve both done surprisingly well even after exceeding their organizers’ charitable goals, such as a new boat for the Junior Sailors or an educational scholarship for a bright Mexican youth. They’ve had participants, sponsors and rewards.

WHAT’S MISSING? Volunteers. Any club or company hoping to run an international group cruise like either the CUBAR or Ha Ha will need a dozen or two volunteers able to consistently provide a raft of valuable skills: teamwork, organizational leadership, communication skills, Spanish language, seamanship knowledge. Volunteers will be needed to fill every job from bookkeeping to booking reservations, from landing fish to landing sponsors, from stuffing goodie bags to presenting seminars, from taking minutes to just showing up with a smile where needed. By now, the Class of ’23-’24 has mostly cruised up into the Sea of Cortez or crossed over to Puerto Vallarta and the mainland cruising grounds. Southbound sail boaters will benefit from next fall’s Grand Finale of the Baja Ha Ha, hopefully to guide them past the rocks and toward safe anchorages. After this fall ‘24, I think we’ll all be voyaging south either individually or in small or large groups of “buddy boaters.”


Route & vessel limitations: Lack of diesel docks is an issue for some sm a l ler p ower boats, because they must be able to carry enough diesel to make it not only 280 n.m. (plus 20% reserve) f rom Ensena da to Turtle Bay, but also 410 n.m. (plus Stops and Hops down Baja: DIY map shows potential stops and offshore hops for getting down Baja – individu20% reser ve) to ally or in groups. run from Turtle Bay to Cabo San L u c a s . P a c i fi c Baja’s lack of reliable overnight anchorages often requires crews of slower boats to stand watch while traveling night and day until the next safe rest stop. Sailboats have an easier time running down Baja, but they can run out of wind and fuel too. Of ficial paperwork: Ever y person onboard (POB) must have their passport valid for at least 180 days, plus an FMM (formerly called Tourist Card) from https:// www.gob.mx/inm good for 180 days, plus a fishing license from https://app.sportfishingbcs.gob. mx/ppd/system/permits/. Boat owners must obtain a TIP (Temporary Import Permit) for their vessels (main hull, also for dinghy with motor, other motorized vessels or vehicles like jet ski, etc.) from Banjercito https://www.ban jercito.com.mx/registroVehiculos/ Please see MEXICO REPORT, PAGE 13

Sadly, the San Diego Yacht Club’s CUBAR powerboat rally down Baja that was founded in 2007 may have ended prematurely with its most recent November, 2022 event. So far, no other club or organization has stepped up to take the helm for future CUBAR voyages.

During the rest of this Mexico R ep or t c olu m n ( Pa r t 1) a n d the next Par t 2 and Par t 3, I’m offering up some local knowledge gleaned by myself and several other frequent volunteers or supporters of the CUBAR and Ha Ha southbound voyages.

Mooring Fees in Newport Harbor Might See a Significant Increase By: LOG STAFF

The Newport Harbor Commission held a meeting on Jan. 10 to review their new appraisal, which would substantially increase offshore mooring fees. Very substantially. For example, a 50-foot mooring would increase from $2,004 to $11,250 per year. “During the January 10th Harbor Commission meeting, the Harbor Commission presented an increase in mooring permit fees, possibly up to 500%,” said a Newport Mooring Association (NMA) representative in an email to the Log. “This has understandably raised concerns among mooring holders.” Here is an example of how current fees are determined for the harbor:

squ a r e fo ot – e x a mple J06 13 40 -foot moor ing - (40’ x 20’) ~800 square foot / price per year $1,603.20 = $2.00 per foot per year

• Homeowner dock: price per square foot - example 645 Via Lido Sound - 772 square foot / price per year $432.40 = $0.56 per foot per year

According to the NMA, those with offshore moorings are currently paying the highest price per square foot per year and the city is attempting, or exploring the idea, of the big rate hike. “We assert that these proposed rate increases do not align with the city’s Local Coastal Plan Policy, which explicitly commits to keeping moorings affordable for the average boater,” said the NMA representative. The NMA released a statement – and an appeal: “The NMA has repeatedly pointed out that mooring holders already pay 5 to 10 times more than all other tideland users, including homeowners with docks and major corporations who operate marinas.

We are currently paying far, far more on a square-foot basis for the use of the same tidelands. This new report exaggerates this discrepancy multiple times over and flies in the face of fairness, and blatantly discriminates against mooring holders… In our view, this, together with the other actions of the Harbor Commission this last year, appears to be designed to destroy private mooring permits as we know them. We need your help, we need your money, and we need your involvement. It’s time to step up and be counted.” The NMA went on to list the four main cost components of obtaining a mooring permit: 1. Cost of the permit 2. Transfer fee to the city for obtaining the permit 3. Annual rent to the city 4. B i - a n n u a l m a i n t e n a n c e a n d servicing costs for the mooring balls and tackle. The NMA also explained how the value of a mooring permit in Newport Harbor can var y depending on the location and size of the mooring. A general rule of thumb is approximately $1,000 - $1,500 per foot, officials said, though more extensive moorings and single-point moorings have been valued higher. There a re approx imately 1,600 moorings in Newport Harbor, both onshore and offshore. The moorings are located in 15 mooring fields spread throughout the harbor, designated A through W.

A Clean Boat Is a Fun Boat By BILL MORRIS

As soon as we drop anchor at Catalina Island, inevitably, someone has to go to the bathroom – including me! But the last thing we want is to sully the beautiful surroundings with effluent from the head – or from the galley or bilge.

Marine Sanitation Device

Whether you choose to adhere to the letter and spirit of the law regarding human solid waste is up to you. If you have second thoughts, think of it as a moral imperative, not some arbitrary rule. As for urine, it is probably harmless in limited amounts, even in a small harbor. In a survival situation, you can even drink it. Most of the male sailors I know urinate directly into the ocean while under sail (remember your harness, mates).

Bill Morris image

Most experienced sailors are well-acquainted w ith the rules governing marine toilets, Y-valves, holding tanks and related fixtures. One big question sailors on older boats will ask is, “What do I do if my boat has no room for a holding tank and was built before holding tanks became mandatory?” The answer is simple. While the boat is within three miles of the coast, close the toilet discharge seacock and store the handle in a drawer.

The West Marine Oilsorber absorbs oil from your bilge, allowing you to pump out the remaining water into the ocean when the vessel is at least three miles from the coast. Solid waste, however, is quite a different matter. Human feces, unlike bird or fish effluent, contains highly infectious coliform bacteria. Far offshore, macerated waste discharged into the water is exposed to intense UV light and is then broken down by myriad microorganisms. But even if the law is not enough to convince us, common sense tells us not to dump fecal sewage into coastal waters. Just for the record, U.S. Coast Guard regulations forbid discharging toilets within three nautical miles of the coast. Use your holding tank as designed and empty it in accordance with the law. An alternative solution for toilet waste is composting toilets. The toilet bowl on this device has separate portals for urine and feces in the bowl, requiring men and ladies alike to sit in order to urinate. Liquid waste is collected in a separate tank for disposal, while fecal waste is allowed to dry and decompose in its own tank. A cup of peat moss may be added to provide extra biological material to aid in the decomposition process. After a few weeks of collecting and composting, the solid waste may be deposited at a pump-out facility. The Air Head, manufactured by EOS Design in Westbrook, Mass., is a completely self-contained apparatus with its own holding tank and a ventilation system to dry out waste. A bit smaller than a standard land toilet, the Air Head can be used regularly by two people for a whole month before necessitating disposal. Other manufacturers of similar systems include Biolet of Fresno, Ohio; Nature’s Head of Van Buren, Ohio; and Sun-Mar of Tonawanda, N.Y. Composting may not work for everyone, but it seems better than sailing with 20 gallons of sloshing sludge and risking a discon-

nected hose or ruptured tank beneath the v-berth.

been dropping into the oceans for eons and are all part of the ecological process.


Inside a protected, crowded harbor, though, a high concentration of organic waste causes eutrophication, a process by which bacteria and algae deplete the water of dissolved oxygen as they multiply and break down the waste. As a result, fish and crustaceans die through paralysis and asphyxiation, particularly at greater depths.

When soap breaks up oil, it does not chemically convert it into a less harmful substance. All the soap does is break up, or disperse, the oil into tiny droplets, forming an emulsion. In short, the oil is still oil. While it is true that diesel and gasoline eventually evaporate, they can still cause extensive harm to aquatic life while they are still floating on the water’s surface. Heavier petroleum distillates, such as motor oil, also gradually evaporate, but in saltwater they first emulsify to form a thick sludge that gunks up beaches, reefs and boat hulls. Evaporation after that point can take many years.

The destruction wrought by eutrophication in portions of Long Island Sound and Los Angeles Harbor, to say nothing of our lakes and rivers, was front-page news in the 1960s and 1970s. Lake Erie, once known as the “Dead Sea of North America,” saw the spread of Aphanizomenon flosaquae algae, which resembles green paint floating on the water. In recent years, owing to greater control of urban water run-off and a ban on phosphorous-based dish soaps in more than a dozen states, the health of Lake Erie, along with U.S. ports and coastal waters, has gradually been improving.

The rule with emptying bilges is easy enough to put in words, but far more difficult to follow. No oil overboard means precisely that. So why can’t we use soap to break up oil in the bilge and pump it overboard the way we toss out a stale cup of coffee? And why does the Coast Guard call soap a “dispersant”?

If your bilge contains oil or fuel, place oil-absorbing mats in the bilge to soak up the residue. The white mats have an affinity for oil, allowing you to pump the remaining water safely out of the bilge once all the oil has been removed. Even more effective is a BioSok Oil and Fuel Absorber from Johnson Pump, which biodegrades petroleum residue in the bilge, allowing you to pump the bilge into open water after the oil or fuel sheen has disappeared.

Gray Water

Small amounts of food waste dumped offshore through g ray water f rom cruising yachts have a negligible effect on the ocean’s health. Mangrove leaves, coconuts and careless land animals have

When using the galley sink, filter out as much solid waste as possible before allowing the water to drain into an anchorage. Also, avoid the use of phosphorous-based soaps, at least while your vessel is in an anchorage or harbor. On many larger yachts, gray water from sink, shower and washing machine drains is connected to a large holding tank, which can be pumped out offshore or at a dockside pump facility in the same manner as a toilet holding tank. By preventing the dumping of illegal waste in our coastal waters, we help to ensure a cleaner, safer environment for coastal and marine flora and fauna, and for ourselves as well.

TECH TIP: Boat Monitoring Systems By BILL MORRIS

The more we streamline and centralize our vessels’ myriad navigation and propulsion systems in one place, either in the pilot house or in the nav station below decks, the safer crew and vessel are while underway on the water. The core of any vessel monitoring system must, of course, include today’s standard array of compass, GPS chartplotter, depth sounder, wind direction indicator and battery charge indicator. More advanced systems include engine monitoring, a radar screen and sensors for water and fuel levels. A small day-sailing vessel with an engine used only for propulsion and nav lights can be well served by a Victron BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor, which features a small LED charge indicator. This diminutive instrument is easy to install and allows you to customize settings, monitor battery data on a single screen and view historical data. You can connect the circular monitor to a current shunt with 10 meters of standard RJ12 telephone cable and fuse. After installing the Victron BMV-712, take advantage of its programmable relay, which turns off non-critical loads and even starts a separate generator if needed. The Victron records battery usage patterns and critical charging events, including time left for charging, ensuring the overall health and longevity of your vessel’s battery banks. Despite its small profile, the Victron BMV-712 battery monitor and shunt can handle up to 10 amps of power, more than enough for small to mid-size vessels. You will find a wide selection of control panels at Paneltronics, from their waterproof, six-position DC toggle

Paneltronics also produces many custom designs fitted to the specific space allowance and onboard electrical grid requirements of your vessel. Pa neltronic s c a n a ccommodate virtually any onboard system with a high-quality panel or multiple-panel array, from a basic panel with six rubber-coated toggle switches and amber LED indicator lights to a large, custom panel with over two dozen switches and two charge meters. Blue Sea Systems, a name familiar to many coastal and offshore sailors, has a wide selection of 12V/24V panels covering a wide range of sizes, from a small-boat, six-position device selling for around $200 to their large, 36-position Blue Sea 8382 DC Panel. While the 8382 normally sells for roughly $1,700, you

can occasionally find it at a bargain price of around $1,300 online. X a ntrex a lso produces a broad assortment of electrical panels and controls, starting with their Freedom X/XC remote charge indicator panel, which uses a blue graphic display to indicate battery charge, load measured in watts and three battery lights. The unit is available for roughly $80 and offers peace of mind when we need a quick read on battery charge. At the upper end of their product line, Xantrex also designs and produces large, custom AC/DC panels for luxury yacht builders. Large arrays come with one or more Xantrex Gateway touchscreen panels, which are customized to meet the demands of large luxury yachts. Yet another familiar name is Sea Dog, which specializes in panels for small

boats. Their six-gang breaker-rocker switch panels come in several styles, from an LED-illuminated panel with power socket to an unlit version with a silicone rubber splash cover. Each of Sea Dog’s toggle and rocker panels comes with a push-button fuse holder on the front of the panel, allowing for quick and easy access. At under $40 for a product well known to many coastal and offshore sailors, it’s hard to imagine a better buy for a small boat. For those seeking a genuinely custom switch array on your floating palace, take a look at the electrical panels from AC/DC Marine in Carson, Calif. The company produces a long list of customizable gauges, engine panels and charging systems, giving you a choice of either traditional analog dials and Please see TECH TIP, PAGE 15

In Memoriam: Dona Jenkins Dona Jenkins, a beloved individual, and esteemed member of the maritime community, passed away on December 21, 2023, at the age of 92, at her residence in San Diego, California. Born on December 20, 1931, in Eufaula, Oklahoma, Dona married John T. Jenkins on May 30, 1954. John preceded her in death in July of 2010. The couple welcomed their only child, Karen Williams, into the world in San Francisco in 1955. Dona commenced her career with the Coast Guard Civil Service in 1959 in San Francisco, California. In 1965, she relocated to San Diego with her husband, who was then transferred. During her tenure with the Coast Guard, Dona held roles such as Licensing Officer for fishermen and later earned a promotion to Documentation Officer. With the closure of several Coast Guard offices under President Reagan’s administration, Dona declined an offered position in Long Beach, California, and opted for early retirement. In 1983, she founded Dona Jenkins Maritime Documentation, Inc., a

venture that flourished due to her respected reputation in the boating industry, built on years of kindness and dedication during her Coast Guard service. Dona, alongside her daughter Karen, became a founding member of AVDA (American Vessel Documentation Association). Karen served as the first Secretary/Treasurer and later as Vice President of AVDA. Dona’s legacy in the maritime community was marked by her inspirational leadership. In June of 2007, Dona and her husband John passed the reins of DJMDS, INC. to Paul and Bernadine Trusso. Dona’s legacy lives on through Bernadine, who, having been personally trained by Dona, continues to celebrate their 40th anniversary and uphold Dona’s name as a true icon in the industry. Dona Jenkins will be remembered for her enduring impact on the maritime world, her kindness, and the inspiration she provided to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She leaves behind a legacy that will be cherished by family, friends, and the maritime community. May she rest in peace.

Catalina Connection 42 Annual Avalon Harbor Underwater Cleanup

AVALON — The Avalon Harbor Underwater

Cleanup, one of the most popular scuba events in the state, will return for its 42nd year from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 24.

The Avalon Harbor Under water Cleanup is a tradition that started in the 1970s as a community effort to protect the health of the kelp forest ecosystems along the coast of Catalina Island. This year, Catalina Divers Supply is happy to continue that tradition alongside the Rotary Club of Avalon and USC’s Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. As the only time scuba diving is allowed in Avalon Harbor, this cleanup gives California divers the opportunity to hop in and explore this site every year while making a positive impact by collecting debris along the way. More than 500 divers and about 100 volunteers regularly participate. Divers will enter the water starting at 9 a.m. to begin cleaning. They are required to complete their dive by 11 a.m. An awards ceremony and prize raffle will be held in the early afternoon with special recognition of partners, sponsors and volunteers. Over the years, tons of trash have been removed from the ocean with an average of 3,000 pounds of debris collected at each cleanup. By working with PADI AWARE, this event contributes to critical research on the range and distribution of marine debris in oceans around the world. With their Dive Against Debris program, PADI AWARE houses the largest underwater

Engine Monitoring

Having a dependable engine monitoring system is essential to a successful voyage. Normally, your engine already will have a control panel installed. If you are purchasing a new engine, make sure you order the best, highest-priced control panel available, not the cheap one with so-called “idiot lights.”

It’s the only time scuba diving is allowed in Avalon Harbor

Early bird registration for scuba divers is $45. Registration for non-divers is $30. For more information visit www. AvalonHarborCleanup.org.

The panel should have needle gauges for the tachometer, oil pressure, coolant temperature and alternator, plus an odometer-like engine hour counter. In addition to these standard features, the panel may include alarms and, yes, “idiot lights” for low oil pressure and excessive temperature. Oil pressure in the U.S. is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI), and the alarm is set by the manufacturer at the minimum allowable oil pressure for that specific model. Maximum engine temperatures also vary among diesel engines, but they all tend to lie just below 212º F, the boiling point of water. If your vessel does not have needle gauges for the engine, you can purchase marine gauges a la carte in a variety of attractive styles from Faria, Sierra,

Stewart Warner and Teleflex (makers of Morse engine and transmission controls). These gauges are waterproof and, since they are sold separately, offer you the advantage of being able to install them in whatever manner you wish, which could be a panel of your own design, tailored to fit the exact spot you have in mind. Garmin, Lowrance, Raymarine and other manufacturers of marine electronic controls offer virtual engine panels, each one with a set of graphic meters that are probably easier to read than the gauges currently installed on your boat. The bright, colorful gauges are set against a dark background, making them easy to read at night. You can access the virtual panel on your GPS chart plotter at the helm or through a remote display at the nav

station. Remote panels, such as the Garmin Remote Input Device (GRID), allow you full access to all the functions on the main panel, a feature you will certainly appreciate in the middle of a sustained full gale. The latest, top-of-the-line engine monitoring technology integrates an incredibly diverse array of systems, including depth sounder/fish finder, radar, weather, iPod and iPhone menus, Sirius SM Satellite Radio, DVD player, stereo speaker controls and various memory functions in addition to the standard GPS and engine panel displays. Check out the latest monitoring systems at your local chandlery and invest in the package best meeting your needs and the needs of your vessel.

Sailing San Diego Yacht Club and Newport Harbor Yacht Club Set Stage for Islands Race Islands Race, hosted by the San Diego Yacht Club (SDYC) and Newport Harbor Yacht Club (NHYC), is set to unfold on Feb. 9-10. Sailors will take on the challenge of this competitive offshore race, covering 142 nautical miles around Santa Catalina and San Clemente Islands. The race, renowned for its overnight endurance test, starts off at Point Fermin in San Pedro and finishes off the coast of Point Loma in San Diego. This annual coastal race typically attracts over 30 boats, setting the stage for various competitive fleets. David Moore, sailing on the Santa Cruz 52 Westerly, expressed his excitement about the race. “This will be our first Islands Race, as last year’s was blown out. I was first introduced to the idea of the race when I met Paul Stemler while admiring his J-44 at NHYC. It was a great race concept and has resulted in a signature event for NHYC, SDYC and our sled community.” Westerly is fresh off their overall win at the 2023 Transpac Race last summer and is looking to build on that experience in the Islands Race and PV Race this winter. For Moore, offshore racing is more than a competition; it’s an opportunity for personal growth. “Every watch, every minute, is an opportunity to create an improved version of yourself. Fast is fun! Wind and waves requested!” Keith Er icson, the ex per ienced skipper of the Tripp 40 B’Quest, shared

The Isla nd s R a c e i s a crucial tune-up for the upcoming offshore season, particularly as a lead-in to SDYC’s Puerto Vallarta (PV) Race two weeks later. Many of the teams racing to Mexico will use the Islands Race to measure themselves against their competition and prep their boats for the 1,000-mile race to PV. The Islands Race format remains consistent with past years and places a strong emphasis on safety protocols to ensure the well-being of all participants.

SAN D IEGO — The highly anticipated

insights into the conditions that make the Islands Race a unique test of skill and strategy. “The weather can be so variable. Some races, the winds are strong throughout and keeping control is what keeps one safe. Others are a mix of moderate to strong winds for a while and then very light winds overnight, so the race is really won at night by working hard to keep the boat going when others can’t quite.”

Post-race, teams w ill gather on Saturday on the San Diego Yacht Club front deck for an awards ceremony. Spectators can follow the race through the YB Trackers, which provide real-time updates on the positions and progress of competing boats.

Prepare for the 59th Congressional Cup By: KATHERINE M. CLEMENTS LONG BEACH — The world’s top-match

racing skippers will return to Long Beach from April 24 - 28 for the 59th Congressional Cup regatta, a premier event on the prestigious World Match Racing Tour, presented by Long Beach Yacht Club. T he 2 02 4 C ong r e s s ion a l C up prom i se s a c t ion a nd e xc it ement . Defending champion Chris Poole (USA) will lead the line-up of competitors, including four-time Congressional Cup winner Gavin Brady (USA), who returns after a 12-year hiatus.

Also on the roster are the top 10 ranked match-racing skippers, including 2009 Congressional Cup winner Johnie Berntsson (SWE), Jeppe Borch (DEN), Eric Monnin (SUI), Mati Sepp (EST), and Nick Egnot-Johnson (NZL), plus Dave Hood (USA). The two final contenders will advance from the Ficker Cup Regatta held the prior week, April 19 to 21. During the five-day racing event, teams will compete using a fleet of uniform 37-foot Catalina keelboats, ensuring a level play ing field. The essence of the game lies in strategy and skill, with crews facing off in a double-round robin format and navigating the course in intense battles. Spectators can witness the action directly from the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier. In 1965, the Long Beach Yacht Club (LBYC) introduced the Congressional Cup, revolutionizing match racing and leading the way in on-the-water umpiring innovation. With the World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) launch in 2000, the Congressional Cup solidified its position as a premier event. The executive director of WMRT, James Pleasance, expressed excitement about the enduring and successful partnership with LBYC. As a founding event, the Congressional Cup has firmly established itself on the international match-racing calendar. It stands as a coveted compe-

tition for aspiring match-racing cha mpions, allowing them to joi n t he d i s t i n guished list of past winners. Po ole not e d , “The Congressional Cup is one of the most difficult events to get into and even more d i ffic u lt t o w i n . The who’s who of yacht racing have all competed for a Crimson Blazer a nd a cha nce to put their name on the Congressional Cup. That is why I’ve worked so hard to get here, to compete against the best on a level playing field.” Poole debuted on the Long Beach race course in 2013 and consistently climbed the leaderboard, culminating in an undefeated performance in every match at the 2023 event. Reflecting on his approach to sailing and match racing, Poole emphasized the mindset of never doubting his ability to compete with his sailing heroes. He steadfastly believed in his potential to be among the world’s top sailors through continuous dedication to improvement. Poole highlighted the significance of mental focus and self-criticism in a sport that rewards those striving to surpass their previous

“The Congressional Cup is the grandfather of match racing and brings world class sailing talent to Long Beach Yacht Club each year,” said Tony Mansour, 2024 Congressional Cup Chair, in a statement. “This year we literally have all of the highest-ranked skippers in the world flying into beautiful Long Beach, Calif. to compete for the distinct honor of the Crimson Blazer.”

The Congressional Cup has a rich history dating to its inaugural edition in 1965. Over the years, it has become a key event in the match-racing calendar, attracting skilled sailors and sailing enthusiasts alike. The competition follows a round-robin format, in which each team competes against every other team before the top teams advance to the knockout stages.

achievements. The Congressional Cup kicks off on April 23 with a practice day and dinner, offering an introduction to the skippers and crews. Then five days of intense racing unfold, accompanied by nightly press conferences and social gatherings hosted at LBYC. The competition takes place off the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier. Additionally, starting on April 26, the event will be live-streamed for those unable to witness the action in person.

LBYC has earned a reputation for exceptional hospitality and organizational prowess, leveraging the dedication and enthusiasm of over 300 member volunteers annually to orchestrate this globally acclaimed event. Since 1965, the club has been the venue where skippers converge to vie for the Congressional Cup and the revered Crimson Blazer. Much like the Green Jacket at the Masters Tournament in golf, the Crimson Blazer symbolizes triumph in one of the most distinguished yacht racing events worldwide, serving as a gateway to the America’s Cup.

Prepare for, Purchase, Protect Your 2024 Fishing License Short Term Sport Fishing Licenses

California offers a number of different fishing license options, including discounted, short-term and annual licenses, but did you know that you have more convenient options than finding a California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) office to purchase one? If you don’t have time to make it to the San Diego CDFW License Sales Office, don’t stress.




One-day Sport Fishing License


Allows a resident or nonresident to fish for one specified day. Oneday sport fishing licenses are exempt from the Ocean Enhancement Validation requirement.

Two-day Sport Fishing License


Allows a resident or nonresident to fish for two consecutive days. Twoday sport fishing licenses are exempt from the Ocean Enhancement Validation requirement.

Fishing licenses are generally required in California for those 16 years of age and older unless they are fishing on a “free fishing day,” which is determined by the CDFW. Free fishing days for 2024 are July 6 and Aug. 31. The CDFW also manages fishing regulations and licenses across the entire state, and the profits from department fees help pay for fishery conservation education and other programs like the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act. Taxes on fishing equipment and licenses are redistributed back into fisheries for research and conservation efforts.

Ten-day Nonresident Sport Fishing License


Allows a nonresident to fish for ten consecutive days.

Like other fishing regulations, a fishing license is intended to protect fish populations against overfishing so that generations of anglers will have good fishing opportunities. The most obvious way to purchase a fishing license is through the official website of the CDFW. You can buy a license online, check fishing regulations that apply to your specific trip and receive a digital copy of your license. If you don’t have access to the internet, your printer is out of ink or you’re out and about, you can purchase one-day and annual licenses at other locations as well. Retailers such as Walmart, Big 5 Sporting Goods and other similar chains often have a licensing desk for purchase of fishing licenses. It’s as easy as walking and having a clerk scan your California driver’s license. Some outdoor recreation

stores specializing in camping, hiking and fishing equipment also may sell fishing licenses. Examples include REI and Bass Pro Shops, but it never hurts to call beforehand and inquire. The current fees for fishing license are listed below: In California, a resident is considered anyone who has resided continuously in the state for six months or more immediately before the date of their application for a license or permit, anyone on active military duty or any person enrolled in the Job Corps. When purchasing a fishing license, make sure to have the necessary information, such as your identification, residency status and payment method. Fishing regulations and license fees may vary, so it’s essential to be aware of the specific requirements for the type of license you need. If you happen to lose your license, there is a sma ll fee to replace it. Therefore, you should take care of your license. Never heat laminate your license because the process will destroy it. If exposed to extreme heat, the license will darken and become discolored. A discolPlease see FISHING LICENSE, PAGE 21

ored license, however, is still valid as long

as it’s readable. While a fishing license doesn’t have to be worn, it should be in your immediate possession while fishing with the exception of when you’re diving.

However, waterproof sleeves attached to lanyards and clips make it convenient to keep your license on your person and protect it from being damaged. These

sleeves can be purchased in stores or online at Amazon.com. For more information, please visit https://wildlife.ca.gov/.

Fishing Tip: The Action of the Lure The action of a fishing lure refers to the movement or behavior that the lure exhibits in the water when it is retrieved or manipulated by the angler. Lure action is a crucial aspect of fishing, as it significantly attracts fish and triggers strikes. Different types of lures are designed to produce specific actions to mimic the natural movements of prey, enticing predatory fish. The ring at the end of the lure allows the lure to move freely and dance in the water. If you do not have the right ring at the end of your lure, it will not have as fluid of a presentation when under the water. You can also use a loop knot if your lure does not have one of those rings. A loop knot is a type of knot used

to create a secure and non-slip loop at the end of a fishing line or leader. The loop formed by this knot is often used to attach terminal tackle such as hooks, lures or swivels.

Dana Wharf Sportfishing Facebook photo


Different techniques of lure action include wobbling, darting or jerking, rolling or spinning, sinking and vibrating. The choice of lure action depends on various factors, including the type of fish being targeted, water conditions and the angler’s preferences. Anglers often experiment with different lures and actions to determine what is most effective in a particular fishing situation. Understanding the behavior of the fish being pursued and matching the lure action to their preferences is vital to successful fishing.

Recycling Your Fishing Line


Discarded fishing lines can harm the environment and get tangled up around marine animals and birds, which can cause injuries, impaired movement, and, in some cases, fatalities. It can also be problematic for boaters and beachgoers if not correctly handled. If the line is not biodegradable, it can remain in the environment for many years, and as responsible anglers, we want to avoid anything that causes harm to our industry. Recycling your fishing line is an important step in environmental conservation. Some fishing lines can be recycled, melted down and turned into plastic pellets that can be remanufactured into fishing items, like spools and other uses. Whether fishing line is recyclable depends on the material. Most lines are made from synthetic materials and not all are readily recyclable. The only recyclable and, therefore, the most eco-friendly fishing line is a single filament nylon product like monofilament, or fluorocarbon – even if it’s a colored fishing line. A monofilament fishing line is a single-strand line typically made of nylon. Some monofilament lines are recyclable and programs and collection bins are specifically set aside for recycling them. Recycling facilities may use the collected monofilament to create new products, but we will get to that later. Fluorocarbon fishing lines are made from a type of plastic called polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). While fluorocarbon is not as commonly recycled as monofilament, some programs may

accept it. It helps to check with specific recycling facilities or manufacturers to determine their acceptance of fluorocarbon lines. I n a l a nd fi l l , these lines won’t break down over time, so they can pose problems for birds and animals tied up in them. T h a t ’s w h y i t ’s great that they can be recycled.

line is adequately taken care of to prevent any harm to others or the environment. For example, cut it into smaller pieces, less than a foot, and place it in a covered bin so animals can’t get to it. Take the bin home and dispose of it when convenient. California State Parks and the California Coastal Commission’s Boating Clean and Green program, Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, NOAA Marine Debris Program and the National Marine Sanctuar y Foundation have placed recycling containers at various locations throughout the state. In all, there are 492 fishing line recycling stations across the state. Through this recycling program, 3,274 pounds of fishing line have been collected and properly recycled. Stretched out, this line would stretch from San Francisco to Bahia Negra, Paraguay.

san diego fish report GOOD WEATHER DAYS OFTEN LEAD TO GOOD FISHING! By Bob Vanian of 976Bite.com

The month of January has seen several weather systems move through Southern California which have brought strong winds, high seas, rain and lightning but anglers have been able to go out and find some fun fishing on the good weather days between storms. I do not know of any bluefin tuna activity being found in local offshore waters lately but there were a couple of private boats out looking around offshore a couple of days ago. They were out exploring by the 43 Fathom Spot and the Corner and were reporting relatively warm 61.1 degree water. As of their last report in the early afternoon, neither Skipper had seen any bluefin. I think the 61.1 degree water was a positive sign as in my way of thinking it is good news that the water has remained as warm 61.1 degrees in the middle of the winter. Hopefully that will prove to be a good indicator that we might start seeing bluefin show up in local offshore waters earlier than one might normally anticipate. An ongoing reminder to anglers is that the annual rockfish closure on the United States side of the Mexico border went into effect on New Years Day and that the closure will remain in effect until April 1, 2024. During this time period

anglers wishing to fish for rockfish will need to do so in Mexican waters. An additional reminder is that the fishing for sheephead on the United States side of the Mexico border will be closed until March 1, 2024. Please refer t o the Department of Fish and Wildlife website for all the details about the various closures at www.wildlife.ca.gov. Los Coronado Islands have been producing good numbers of rockfish for those wishing to escape the rockfish closure in United States waters and do some rockfish fishing. A productive rockfish zone has been at the hard bottom to the northwest, north and northeast of North Island in the 25 to 60 fathom depths. Another productive rockfish zone has been at the South Kelp Ridge below South Island in the 25 to 45 fathom depths. A recent three-quarter day trip to Mexican waters on Daiwa Pacific out of H&M Landing had a fish count of 20 anglers catching 132 rockfish, 1 lingcod, 5 sheephead and 62 reds. On a side note, if you are out fishing for rockfish in the region of Los Coronado Islands it might be a good idea to keep a lookout for signs of bonito or yellowtail activity in the region of Los Coronado Islands and at the Flats area outside of the Bull Ring at Tijuana. A couple of days ago, there were some breaking

bonito seen in the rockfish area out to the northwest of North Island. When the weather allows, sportboats have been targeting rockfish, lingcod and yellowtail on 1.5 day trips to fish the waters in the Punta Colnett region. ON the last trip aboard Horizon out of H&M Landing they had 9 anglers catch 90 rockfish and 18 lingcod. The fishing along the San Diego County coast has been highlighted by yellowtail activity in the La Jolla region. It has usually been hard to get the yellowtail to bite but every once in a while there are a few yellowtail caught that have been in the 15 to 35 pound range. This morning Skippers are reporting finding an increase in yellowtail activity but anglers are having a very hard time getting a yellowtail to bite the baits and jigs being presented to them. Most yellowtail hookups have been on yo-yo iron or surface iron fished around spots of bait, meter marks, sonar marks or spots of breaking fish. Most of the yellowtail activity has been found in depths ranging from 14 to 40 fathoms. Areas of bait are likely spots where yellowtail might show. The best zones to try to locate yellowtail have been along the outskirts of the MLPA closure zone at the lower end of La Jolla as well as outside of the upper end of La Jolla. Yo-yo jigs fished around yellowtail meter marks that are found around

deep bait balls have accounted for the majority of the yellowtail hookups and good choices for yo-yo iron include Salas 6X and 6X Jr. jigs in blue and white and scrambled egg colors. Surface iron has also been effective when you can cast the jig to breaking fish before they sound. Good choices for surface iron include Tady 45 and Salas 7X light jigs in blue and white, mint and sardine colors. Full story will be found online. Bob Vanian is the voice, writer, and researcher of the San Diego-based internet fish report service called 976-Bite which can be found at www.976bite.com. Vanian also provides anglers with a personal fish report service over the telephone at (619) 226-8218. He always welcomes your fish reports at that same phone number or at bob976bite@aol.com.
