  • From the Boathouse: Happy New Year — but watch those balloons

    Ahoy! I want to wish everyone a very happy New Year, and I know that 2014 will be a great year for boating. As we leap into the New Year, let us reflect for a moment on the people you know personally who are boaters and those who work in the maritime...

    OCC is losing its sailing symbol
    The Alaska Eagle has proudly displayed the Orange Coast College flag on its stern for 32 years and more than 290,000 miles. But Tuesday morning, as crew members worked to disassemble the 90-foot mast, OCC's flag had been replaced with the red, white and...
  • Remember trusty boat, beautiful ports and great friends

    Remember trusty boat, beautiful ports and great friends
    I took a last stroll around the deck of Alaska Eagle today. Every step, every hand rail felt familiar, as they do after finishing a long voyage. I was 29 when we first took students aboard from the Orange Coast College docks in October 1982. Now, 31...

    The 2014 sailing season will be upon us before you know it, and this year, our local PHRF fleet needs your help. I will start to sound like a broken record, but I trust you still understand my meaning — local participation is at an all-time low. The...

  • From the Boathouse: A caution for south of the border

    Ahoy! Are you planning to cruise your boat south of the border to Ensenada or Cabo San Lucas for an adventure and warmer weather before the hurricane season begins this year? Then I highly recommend that you do not cross the U.S.-Mexican border...
  • Mailbag: Bike riders, skateboarders must show more caution

    Note to parents who have children riding bikes and skateboards to school: While driving last week in Newport Heights, a number of commuters and I were taking our respective turns at a four-way stop sign. As the other cars stopped to allow me to take...
  • Hats off to the USS Orange County

    Hats off to the USS Orange County
    The doughy LSTs, or landing ship tanks in military parlance, were the U.S. Navy's amphibious landing workhorses of World War II, the Korean conflict and the Vietnam War. Flat-bottomed and keel-less, the 328-foot LSTs, their guns blazing, crawled onto...
  • From the Boathouse: Reporting on the dock of the bay

    Ahoy! Wow, I cannot believe that the 2014 Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race is starting to show on the fringes of my radar screen once again. In only a few months, hundreds of sailboats will cross the start line in the ocean off Balboa Pier...

    It's been close to a year since I last checked in with Deputy Sean Scoles of the Newport Beach division of the Orange County Sheriff's Department Harbor Patrol. For those of you who have forgotten Scoles' duties, they include monitoring the mooring...
