Hello Fellow Cruisers:

We have just received word of an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT LEGAL RULING WHICH WILL AFFECT ALL CRUISERS WHO ANCHOR, OR PLAN TO ANCHOR, ON FLORIDIAN WATERS!!!!! As you can see from the headlines above, Collier County Judge Rob Crown, has struck down the much discussed Marco Island local anchorage regulations!

We have just posted a full story about this IMPORTANT news on the special "Marco Island Mess" page of the Salty Southeast Cruisers' Net. I urge ALL CRUISERS ON THIS ALERT LIST to check out this story without delay,. And, PLEASE help us get the word out about this story to other members of the cruising community who are not members of this Alert List. Those of you who are members of MTOA, SSCA, the AGLCA and the GL (Great Loop) mailing lists, please reproduce this e-mail on your lists. Members of yacht clubs and US Power Squadrons will also want to get this important word out to their members. And, before someone asks, this story is a bit too lengthy to simply include in this e-mail. That's why everyone is being referred to the Salty Southeast Cruisers' Net.

So, to read about this great victory for the entire cruising community, go without delay to Peruse the navigational buttons along the left side of the page, and find the "Cruising News From" section. Click on the "Marco Island Mess" link/button and you're off and running!

Good luck and good cruising!

Claiborne S. Young

This is happy news indeed! Because I occasionally cruise in or thru that area this ruling could have a real positive impact on my sailing. I feel like celebrating. It must be 5 0'clock somewhere.

I think this ruling is going to have reverberations throughout Florida. You might recall that all of this started with the City of Miami passing their own very restrictive anchoring policy, and it was quickly followed by other Florida communities.

This is a win for the the good guys, but I fear the issue is not completely settled yet .
