Chula Vista Marina Newsletter | San Diego Bay | Sept 2022

**Marine Gear Swap Meet - October 1st**

News from the Dockmaster

Welcome Mariners to the September issue of the CVM Newsletter. We had a great summer here at the Marina! There's still some time on the water to be had. With the change in season, there is some great sailing to do this time of the year. We have a nice Santa Ana breeze in the morning and usually a stronger onshore wind in the afternoon. The boat traffic in the bay is also noticeably less. So, I say take advantage of our ability to boat year-round in San Diego and cast your lines and get out there!! I mean, in some places in the U.S., boating season is already completely done until next year.

We will be having our Marine Gear Swap Meet October 1st. This is always a fun event at the Marina. We have the sign-up sheet ready, so please call the office and make your reservations.

See you on the docks!

Please Do Not Feed the Ducks

Attention Marina tenants: Please do not feed the ducks! 

It has come to our attention that there is an abundance of ducks on the docks this year. Ducks will hang around areas where they have food and fresh water. 

Feeding the ducks is not healthy for them. It disrupts their natural diet, causes them to become reliant on human food and abandon their natural sources of nutrition, causing health issues. It also desensitizes them to human activity - meaning, they don’t mind hanging around people.

This has become quite a problem. Not only do the ducks make a mess on the dock and in the slips, but they will also make a mess on your boat and damage your gel-coat. 

Because of the Marina’s proximity to Bayside Park, we understand that there is wildlife around. We are also located in marine preserve, and we certainly do not want to disturb nature. However, eliminating their food source and fresh water source on the docks will encourage them to go elsewhere.

Please check your hoses. A leak in a hose is a fresh water source for ducks. If you notice that the leak is coming from where the spigot connects to the dock box, please call the office, and we can put in a maintenance request to repair the leak.  

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in this matter.
