 July 21st, 2013

In May your Dana Point Boaters Association introduced the Boater Liaison Program, BLP for short, offering Dana Point boaters the means to raise any issue of their choosing to harbor management, with DPBA acting as advocate, as well as spokesperson for those wishing to remain anonymous.  We published the written findings from the first meetings two weeks ago over the July 4th weekend.  Do click here if you missed that boater blast.  Dana Point boaters raised some thought provoking topics and harbor management responded in kind.

The day before yesterday in the latest issue of The Log, our program was objectively evaluated and we thought you might be interested in learning what The Log's take was.  Ambrosia Brody's article starts  here and concludes here.

As mentioned in The Log article, we've already received several new BLPs that will be vetted during our next meetings to be held by the end of summer.  But if you have a question, issue or concern that you want to us raise there's still time.  Just click here.

Onward through the very unusual nighttime rain and summer afternoon fog.

The Dana Point Boaters Association

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.
