Friday, June 9, 2006 The CATAUNA ISLANDER Page 5 Tile heat was on over the weekend. Island temperatures hit the 90-degree mark in some areas of the interior and hovered in the mid-80s in Two Harbors. After several weeks of the proverbial "June Gloom" the warm and sultry sunshine was a welcome change of pace and enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. For some folks, however, the enjoyment turned to discomfort. Later in the evening, or the next day, the after-effects of the blazing sun turned into the inevitable sun- burn for those that neg- lected a thorough coat- ing of sunscreen. ,Surprisingly, there were not very many boaters at the Island over the weekend, with the excep- tion of a nearly "full house" in the Whites Landing area. Yacht Clubs Cruise Newport Harbor, Balboa, and San Diego Yacht clubs all held their annual Stag Cruise to their respective Island sites. Those three dubs, as well as the cove Harbor Patrol team of Jason Rose and Mike Napoli, had a heck of a time with the heavy surge that mani- fested in the entire Cove over the weekend. Emanating from a large south swell generated in the southern hemisphere, the big surge made it virtually impossibleto perform their normal beach skiff and dinghy landings. It was even difficult to land on the end of the Whites Land- ing and Moonstone piers. In the mooring fields, the beach row of moorings had to be closed for safety reasons and all of the moorings in all coves were subject to a lot of surge motion. Other than the surge, the cruises went off just fine and were obvi- ously enjoyed by all in attendance. In the Isthmus area, surge was not a factor, but the turnout was surprisingly low, considering the hot and generally pleasant weather. Two small cruises place in the mus.
