RIGHT OF WAY
We get lots of questions as to who has "right of way" when sailing out on Utah Lake. Mostly power boat vs. sail boat situations. Interesting read on COLREGS (Collision Regulations), on the Solent.
I'd be curious what COLREGS (tongue in cheek) would have to say about fishermen using the only navigatable waters keelboats have to leave and return on, using the Provo Marina. Comments are welcome.
Nautic Ed offers free navigation rules on-line course.
Tough COLREGS Question
Who has rights?
Pumpkin under power (limited manuverability) or Sailboat under sail?

OCTOBER SCARY STUFF
MAY INDUCE THALASSOPHOBIA
You should have seen the one that got away!
18 foot long "Oarfish" recently discovered off Catalina Island.
These guys can reach lengths of 56 feet long. I wonder if Joe and Jay knew these "sea serpents" were just 1,000 feet away, the last time they went snorkeling off Two Harbors, Catalina.
UTAH LAKE ON THE RISE
According to my trusty "rocks by the dock" water level monitoring system, we are actually seeing a slight rise in water levels at Utah Lake. Figures from the folks with PHD's support my hypothesis. I recall bouncing off rocks last month at a - 4.15 reading, according to the water wizards. October 31 has been designated as our last day to be in the water. Just when it's getting good again.
