Our next Members only and new Members meeting is next Monday, March 14th, 7pm to 9pm, and will be held at the Boat House Meeting Room in the Dana Point Harbor Sailing and Events Center.

(That's the building farthest away from the street and closest to the inner channel waterway.

Our guest speaker is Sheila Lagrand, Flotilla Staff Officer, Public Affairs (FSO-PA) for the Dana Point Flotilla for the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.  Sheila also serves on the national Auxiliary staff as Assistant Editor for the USCGA's quarterly publication, Navigator.  Sheila will be speaking about things all recreational boating captains should know, tell and do with their passengers and crew.  Point Flotilla Commander Bob Arovas will also attend and participate during a question and answer discussion during wrap up.

Immediately following will be a DPBA member open forum discussion focused upon the Harbor Patrol, harbor reconstruction financing and slip rates.  These are three VERY inextricably entwined subjects.

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.
