Anchoring Together:

Enhancing Our Harbor with Fair-Priced Slip Fees and

Better Amenities for All Boaters

Dear Dana Point Boaters,

We hope this message finds you well, enjoying the tranquility of our marinas and the joy of boating. As fellow boaters, we understand the importance of fair slip fees and amenities that enhance your on-water experience. Introducing "Anchoring Together: Enhancing Our Harbor with Fair-priced Slip Fees and Better Amenities for All Boaters." (DPBA fundraising initiative supporting Boaters' Rights.)

Every boater should have access to reasonably priced slip fees and better boater amenities that keep Dana Point Harbor unique and special. We continue to support the ongoing class-action lawsuit to overturn the outrageous slip prices and decreased boater amenities.

In addition to our legal efforts, we aim to work independently toward improving our harbor's infrastructure, amenities, and services. Here's how your contributions to this fundraising campaign make a difference:

1.    Legal Support: Your generous donations support the lawsuit, pursuing fair-priced slip fees and improved boater amenities. By standing united as a community, together, we can hold harbor management accountable for their actions.

2.    Transparent Communication: Open and honest communication fosters a strong harbor community. We're committed to improving transparency between harbor management and boaters, ensuring that decisions regarding slip fees and amenities get made collaboratively, considering the needs and concerns of all boaters.

3.    Spirit of Increase: Help us reach underserved community members and provide them with opportunities to learn about the ocean. Education benefits everyone, and we want to nurture the next generation of ocean enthusiasts.

We encourage you to stand with us to pursue fair-priced slip fees and enhanced boater amenities. Here's how you can contribute to our fundraising efforts:

  • Make a Donation: Your financial support is instrumental in fueling our legal efforts and improving our marina's infrastructure. Whether a one-time or recurring contribution, every dollar brings us closer to our goals.

  • Share Your Voice: Write to the county supervisors, attend community meetings, and actively participate in discussions regarding slip fee prices and boater amenities with your fellow boaters, friends, and family. Your insights and feedback are invaluable in shaping the future of our beloved harbor.

By standing strongly together as one united community, we can create lasting changes and ensure a harbor that prioritizes fair slip fees and excellent amenities for all boaters without compromising the distinctiveness and charisma unique to Dana Point.

Thank you for your support and commitment to improving Dana Point Harbor. Together, we can sail toward a brighter future!

Smooth sailing
