    I'm sorry, BobJ, but a surfboard is not a vessel, these surfers are not crossing a narrow channel but are over the dredge spoil area east of the East Breakwater, nor are they impeding the passage of a vessel.

    Please try again. A hint for those who are stumped: this federal law, as administered by the US Coast Guard for safe navigation, may not apply internationally.

    Rule 9 was certainly an issue with all the SUPs blocking the entrance, when we were trying to exit one day after a Windjammers Race. It's hard to tell from your photo whether he is in line with the channel, but I thought you were suggesting the guy on the left was a paddleboard.

    Santa Cruz Port District Ordinance 222, Rule 9, and other right of way rules between floaty things, are red herrings when attempting to answer this quiz . Not to say there isn't something basically wrong going on in the photo.

    In that case I will go with Rule 5. Failure to keep a proper lookout.

    The Walton lighthouse is painted with red and should be green as it is on port entry...if it is also considered a day marker.

    Thank you! Shortly after dedication in 2003, it was discovered "Red, Right, Returning" using the paint scheme on the new, New England style, $1.25 million Santa Cruz Harbor lighthouse, would deposit you on Seabright Beach. Rainer was ordered to immediately repaint the red stripe green, and used a 40 foot extension ladder to complete the dangerous task. Meanwhile the Coast Guard and its Aids to Navigation office placed a red lighted buoy on the starboard side of the channel next to the East Breakwater to cover themselves.

    I was told to study the pick of the light house because there is an amazing thing that Rainer, the alien implanted , painter captured with his camera.
    The fact that the green light on the lighthouse and the red light on the buoy were captured flashing at the same time is amazing, but upon further study, there is a little white lite just off the end of the west breakwater that is the Mile buoy also flashing at the same moment.
    Coincidence, conspiracy or photoshop?

    Thanks, Howard, and also to Intermission for pointing out the amazing coincidence of 3 Santa Cruz aids to navigation all flashing simultaneously as Rainer clicked his camera from his location aboard his Sport-Yak.
    It is not photo shopped. I drew a line on a local chart from Rainer's location inside the breakwater to Mile Buoy, and indeed the range line does just touch the end of the West Breakwater, the location of the tiny pin prick of white light seen flashing one mile south of the breakwater.

    Congrats to Lee Johnson and MORNING STAR on their successful, 21 day passage from Catalina Island to Hilo, Hawaii. Lee's voyage report is attached, and hints at his good prep and seamanship.

    Passage Report: Morning Star to Hilo

    The s/v Morning Star, a Valiant 32 with 01 persons aboard (namely this correspondent), departed Avalon, CA on October 29, 2020 for Hilo, HI where we made landfall November 19, 2020 (21 days at sea). We sailed a total of 2,442 nm averaging 4.8 kts. Measured against the 2,129 nm straight-line distance (from Catalina’s East End Light to the Hilo breakwater light) our over-all VMG was 4.2 kts.
    We saw a wide range of sailing conditions, but no hazardous weather. For nearly a week we had periods of little wind alternating with utter calm and scarcely did 65 nm/day for the first six days out. Then for the next 12 we averaged 132 miles per, with a best 24 hour run of 145 nm. Sustained winds seldom exceeded 20 kts (though sustained gusts above 30 happened), and the seas in that stretch were generally 8 – 10’ on a long period, making for a comfortable ride – at least between squalls. Light conditions again beset us for a few days, before a final three days of decent speed took us into Hilo Bay.
    There were days of squally conditions requiring frequent reefing changes. We had at least partial cloud cover most days, with several days of solid clouds and intermittent rain. That, of course, made the hand full of sunny days even more enjoyable.
    Wildlife was not abundant. We did see plenty of flying fish (some with astonishing range in flight), a few pods of dolphin, and a half dozen or so specie of sea birds. No squid boarded us, and only one flying fish came in for a landing.
    We had no significant injuries or gear breakage. A cut to my left index finger on day 16 could have used a stitch or two, but the first aid treatment was sufficient. The prescription antibiotics in the medical bag remain unopened.
    The passage was completed with ship and skipper in good condition, and with food, water, fuel, and stamina still in reserve. The new genoa proved its worth through every configuration in which it can be deployed. The post-excursion to-do list is significantly shorter than the list we had after our 2018 sail to Hawaii and back.
    In short, it was a lot of fun, with hours and days steeped in the beauty of ocean wilderness and the joy of adventure. As importantly, much was learned about doing this sort of thing – which is good, because I am counting on more of it.
    Aloha. Lee
