We have made arrangements with Sheila Lagrand, (FSO-PA), USCGA, Dana Point Flotilla.  Sheila will be speaking on items all Recreational Boating Captains should know, tell, and discuss with their passengers and crew. Sheila's presentation will be our first agenda item, and she will field questions thereafter.
Sheila has been a member of the Auxiliary since 2005.  She is the Flotilla Staff Officer, Public Affairs (FSO-PA), for the Dana Point Flotilla. She also serves as an administrative assistant to the District Commodore, Harry Jacobs, and in that capacity serves on his District Publication Review Advisory Committee.  She also serves on the National Auxiliary Staff as Assistant Editor for our quarterly publication, Navigator.  Sheila and her husband Rich live in Trabuco Canyon and keep their 25' Boston Whaler, Tohora Iti, in Dana Point Harbor.
Following Sheila's presentation your Board will present and discuss updates on Harbor Revitalization and California Coastal Commission "Pending" Long Beach Staff IP Documentation.  We will also share the current objectives and activities that we have been engaging in over the past months.  We will then open the floor to any questions you may have, as we want to hear from our members.

We look forward to seeing you Monday, March 14th, 2011 at 7:00PM.

Mission Statement:
The Dana Point Boaters Association advocates the preservation, enhancement, and expansion of affordable recreational boating resources.  We work to improve the family friendly atmosphere and breadth of water-oriented actives we all enjoy in the harbor.  We serve as the watchdog by ethically protecting the rights of all boaters and representing them when collective action is most effective.  We actively gather information and communicate our views to educate boaters, external interests, and public officials.  We build and maintain constructive, working relationships to achieve common goals with other harbor stakeholders.  We will pass on our harbor to the next generation of recreational boaters in better condition than it is today.
Questions should be directed by email to (  Or call us at (949) 485-5656 and leave a voice mail and we'll get back to you soon.
