MINI HAPPY HOUR HOSTING
Now that the weather is getting warmer and many of us are 'getting shot up', it's time to revive our Mini Happy Hours. If you are interested in hosting a Happy Hour anytime from March 14 to April 30, please 'register' and in the registration page you'll be given an opportunity to indicate dates and times. Glenn Brown, our Rear Commodore will be in contact you.
If you don't have a particular date in mind yet and just want more information, again Glenn will contact you.
Join the crew and Skipper of Haitus as they end a great day of sailing with a Dockside Happy Hour.
The DHH is a “non-hosted”, BYOE event (i.e., the skipper is not the host). Participants will meet at the entrance to F-Dock and find a picnic table or other location where chairs could be set up. There will be no guarantee that the skipper for that day will be back at any particular time, or that they or their crew would be able to participate in the DHH … but you never know. Come down and enjoy the sun, the water, and the fellowship of your Club!
Registration is open to LWYC Members and their guests.

How the Shark Lab at Cal State Long Beach is protecting both people and Sharks
Dr. Chris Lowe
Director, Shark Lab
California State University, Long Beach
With shark populations increasing there have been more and more sightings along Southern California beaches. The Shark Lab at California State University Long Beach has been using underwater robots for autonomously tracking shark populations and studying their behavior. Working with lifeguards from San Diego to Santa Barbara the Shark Lab tagged a record number of 53 great white sharks in 2020.
The Shark Lab works with local lifeguards to develop protocols for how to best advise the public when sharks are sighted. They do this not only to keep the people safe but to keep the sharks safe as well. The Shark Lab has worked hard over the past 20 years to bring shark populations back from being over fished. Sharks are very important animals in our marine ecosystems. They help keep marine mammal populations healthy and they also keep fish populations healthy. We must learn to share the oceans with them.
