HARBOR ACTIVITY REPORT May 2014 May began with a small craft advisory however the winds did not keep the Celebrity "Century" away on the 1st for their second to last visit for the spring. The winds calmed for a few days but-returned with a gale warning on the 6th, causing the "Inspiration" to postpone their visit until the 7th. The seas were so high that the Newport Boat cancelled as did the first trips of the day for the Catalina Express. The Express did run a few crossings mid-day but cancelled any further trips after 2:45pm for the remainder of the schedule due to deteriorating sea conditions. The first weekend of,me,_ month Horizon Yacht Club visited with several boats, Mackerel Flats Yacht lub with a few, Balboa Basin Yacht Club with 5 boats and Dana Point Yacht Club with 15 boats. On the 15th we had visitors arrive from Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club, Seagate Yacht Club and 35 boats from Huntington Harbor Yacht Club. At 3:15 in the afternoon of the 1 lth, the fuel dock reported that a vessel that had just taken on fuel was now on fire near the rocks behind the dock. Our patrol boat, equipped with pump and fire hose, responded and quickly began putting water on the fire. The occupants had been safely removed. Baywatch Avalon arrived on scene minutes later and took over the fire suppression. Although the vessel was severely damaged, all other vessels and structures were kept protected. On May 12th the fishing vessel "Linda Faye" rescued a young bald eagle 1 miles off the east end of the island. The eaglet was brought to Avalon and a team member of the Marine Animal Rescue (an Avalon Harbor Patrolman) transported the bird to the animal clinic for treatment. The middle of May brought unseasonably hot weather for several days peaking on the 14th with a high temperature of 91.4 degrees recorded at 3pro.
