As a local yacht broker, it is my job to know a lot of people around the harbor. Some I like saying hello to and some I try to ignore. Then there are those few people I go out of my way to give a big hello to because it just feels good. One of those people is Ray Dasilva, the assistant dock master at the Balboa Yacht Club. It's always a big friendly hello with Ray, followed by that big smile and then, "How's your back, Len?" Years ago, I pulled my back out and Ray has asked about it each time we meet.

During this year's Harbor 20 fleet championships I was reviewing the entry list in B fleet and sizing up the competitors when I noticed the boat Chloe. The skipper was Richard Blatterman, crew was John Cazier. I thought to myself, "We should be able to take them. " But then again, Richard and John have some history sailing in our local waters. That's when it hit me: I need to interview these guys and find out what keeps them coming back and always finishing in the top five of the major regattas.

I have been out on the harbor a lot lately, sailing my Harbor 20 and showing boats. Therefore, it must be that time to update you on the past winter's race results, upcoming races and some of my harbor observations. While walking through the shipyards this week, I could not help but notice our harbor's larger racing sailing boats being pulled out in preparation for next month's Newport to Cabo race sponsored by the Newport Harbor Yacht Club. At last count, there are 35 boats entered in this year's race.

Steve Virgen CORONA DEL MAR - With the girls volleyball postseason ahead, Newport Harbor High Coach Dan Glenn wanted his team to improve its play on the road. The Sailors didn't disappoint their coach on Friday night. Harbor defeated Back Bay rival Corona del Mar, 15-12, 15-7, 9-15, 15-8 in a nonleague match at CdM. The Sailors played as if they were hosting the match as they stifled any Sea King momentum. "This is the best we've played on the road," Glenn said.

President Obama’s budget request includes about $1.8 million for Newport Beach to dredge its harbor. Although it is the responsibility of the Army Corps of Engineers to keep the bay dredged in compliance with federal law, the corps hasn’t had any funding to do it since the 1930s, when the harbor was dedicated. As a result, silt buildup has made the harbor shallower to the point where it is not navigable for boats with deep keels. The city recently scored $17 million in stimulus funding to finish dredging the Upper Newport Bay, which has been an ongoing project for the last few years, but this is the first time any money has been earmarked for the harbor.

A proposed study to find out how much Newport Beach's harbor resources are worth will help city officials determine if people who work and play there are contributing their fair share to its upkeep. Like one of those credit card commercials that pronounces some things "priceless," it may be impossible to quantify the value of Newport Beach's harbor. That won't stop city officials from trying. In February, the City Council will consider commissioning a first-of-its-kind study to find out whether boaters, harbor businesses and residents who live along the coast are paying enough for the benefits they get from the water.

Orange Coast College's men's soccer team suffered its first loss of the season Tuesday, dropping a 3-1 nonconference decision to visiting L.A. Harbor. Coast (4-1-3) jumped to a 1-0 lead behind Dan Espinoza's goal in the ninth minute off a pass from Geno Vitale-Sansosti, but that was the end of the OCC fireworks. "We dominated the first half, but we just couldn't finish off any of our scoring chances," said OCC assistant coach Pat Callaghan. "They did a better job of that, which made the difference in the game."

As with most studies related to our ocean's and our harbor's safety and cleanliness, a report last week covering 2004 contained good and bad news. First the bad news from Testing the Waters, which was compiled by the Natural Resources Defense Council: There were 939 beach advisories or closures last year in Orange County and, closer to home, the water in the harbor at 33rd Street and near the intersection of Newport Boulevard and West Coast Highway was persistently unhealthy.

Newport Beach does not necessarily conjure up wintertime images. The beaches and the harbor are best enjoyed in the warm summer months, most will tell you. But those who say that haven't spend much time watching the Christmas Boat Parade, which just kicked off its 95th year on Wednesday night. As legend has it, the parade was once dubbed by the New York Times as one of the five top holiday events in the nation. Each year, it has lived up to that reputation, and this year we don't expect it to be any different.

All she does is win, win, win, no matter what. Newport Harbor High senior Marissa Robertson can relate to that DJ Khaled song. This year in the pool, she has been unbeatable for the Sailors girls' swim team. Robertson has won all of her individual races all year long. The 50-yard freestyle, 100 free, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly? No problem. On Tuesday in a Sunset League meet against Marina, Robertson even threw in the 200-yard individual medley for good measure. "I don't usually swim 200s," Robertson said the next day, able to laugh because she again touched first, before any of her competition.

While a few of us sailed down to Ensenada last weekend, most stayed in town and participated in the Balboa Angling Club's 51st Annual Lily Call Bay Tournament on April 26 and 27. This is an in-the-harbor tournament using 4-pound line and fishing for croaker, corbina, halibut and bass. According to angler Greg Taite, last weekend delivered "some of the worst weather I have ever seen in the harbor. " Taite, who has been the Balboa Angling Club's outstanding angler for the past two years, won this year's Grand Slam for placing in each category.

With two balls, two strikes and two outs in a 2-2 game, the deuces truly were wild for Fountain Valley High baseball senior Daniel Patzlaff on Friday afternoon. Patzlaff, who wears jersey No. 2 for the Barons, saw a pitch he liked in the top of the fourth inning. It was down and in, but he managed to hit it out to right field. The two-run home run was — you guessed it — Patzlaff's second round-tripper of the season. And it helped the Sunset League-leading Barons earn their second win over Newport Harbor in three days, 4-2, at the Sailors' field.

Senior Kole Escher produced five goals, setting a Newport Harbor single-season school record for goals with 52, as the Sailors walloped Edison, 20-5, in a Sunset League boys' lacrosse finale at Davidson Field on Friday. Escher broke Zach Gagnon's mark of 49 set in 2009. Escher became the first Sailor to score a goal in each of the program's regular-season games, helping Newport Harbor win its sixth straight and improve to 8-8 overall and 6-2 in league. The 20 goals also set a single-game school record for Newport Harbor, which placed second in league.

What a game! What a game! That might be a simple way to describe what took place Wednesday night at Davidson Field, where Newport Harbor High and Marina battled in a wild and crazy boys' lacrosse game. But Sailors Coach Mark Todd probably put it best when talking about the way his guys took a much-needed 13-11 victory over the Vikings, who featured former Tars assistant Ryan Abatte as their head coach. "A perfect storm for disaster," Todd said before addressing his victorious Sailors in a post-game meeting.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY - Having picked up a key Sunset League victory Friday over Edison High, the Newport Harbor baseball team ventured to Fountain Valley on a blustery Wednesday, hoping to keep its momentum going against the league-leading Barons. The Sailors played on even terms with the third-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division 1 on a wind-whipped afternoon, but Fountain Valley put up the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fifth inning and made it stand to come away with a 3-2 victory.

Early in the season, adversity struck the Newport Harbor High boys' lacrosse team. During the first five games, the Sailors lost a starter to injury each contest, Coach Mark Todd said. There were some broken collarbones to some players, Todd said, as well as a broken hand to talented freshman midfielder Chandler Pierce, who was lost for the season. It all became challenging for the Sailors, who stumbled early in the Sunset League season as well, as some players recovered from injury and others left for spring-break trips.

Have you ever watched the ventriloquist comedian Jeff Dunham when he is doing a routine with his puppet, Walter? The character is described as an old curmudgeon who says whatever we're afraid to say, because he just doesn't care anymore. When I was making my way around the harbor this week, I had a chance to talk to a few of my favorite old curmudgeons. Picture a group of Walters, sitting in a semicircle, being interviewed with only their silhouettes exposed to protect their identities, and they all have Walter's voice.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Eleven days had passed since Newport Harbor High last played a Sunset League baseball game. The Sailors resumed league play on Wednesday and they continued where they left off, in a rut. A lack of offense in league has plagued Newport Harbor, which lost at Edison, 5-1. In the last 21 innings in league, one run is all the Sailors have produced. They avoided a third straight shutout in league by scoring in the final inning. Edison starter Noah Kronfly went into the seventh having thrown only 60 pitches, one led to a Sailors hit. Newport Harbor recorded its second and third hits in the seventh, before Kronfly finished things off. He improved to 5-1 and moved the Chargers (15-5, 6-2 in league)
