ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - Just like any vessel over 100 feet long, yachts are required by Oregon law to use a maritime pilot to cross the Columbia River Bar, where the river meets the Pacific Ocean.

The captain of a 164-foot yacht found that out after crossing the bar Sunday.

The Daily Astorian reports (https://bit.ly/1pbnpre ) the captain of the Cayman Island flagged D’Natalin 4 was served with a notice Monday at a dock in Vancouver. The captain could face a fine of more than $5,000.
