If you are planning one last Fall cruise, remember the
Long Island Loop Cruising Club


Rex and Cove, together with other independent marinas on the Long Island Sound, offer each others customers discounted rates on overnight dockage. This gives our customers the opportunity to visit places up and down the Sound in short hops. Additionally, with soaring fuel prices, it's economical and easy to visit closer destinations which may not have been on your radar.


Each member of the Long Island Loop Cruising Club offers something a little different. Boaters can book online or by phone and must mention that they are members of either Cove or Rex and part of the Long Island Loop Cruising Club to receive discounts. Slips are based on availability.

September 2012 America's Cup Update -
                     Incredible Technology !!


The America's cup is pushing the frontier in both powerboats as well as sailboats: Check out the new state of the art chase boat that Emirates Team New Zealand has introduced.... With 4 X 300 HP outboards and 58 MPH top speed, it screams !


 OK, now for the real question...... why does a sailboat need such a high powered chase boat and tender ??


Because the new real America's Cup 

Catamarans are 72 feet long and fly,    

no, REALLY fly......     


The past year's racing in the 45 foot cats was all practice and R&D leading up to the big 72 foot cats (with 131 ft wing sails) which will compete for the America's Cup beginning on Sept. 7, 2013 in San Francisco.

It's Getting Dark Early -  

          Do Your Running Lights Work ?  


The rules state:   

Recreational vessels must display their required navigational lights
at all times between sunset and sunrise, and during daylight periods
of reduced visibility.  


Note: Spot lights, bright white "headlights" and mounted fishing lights should be OFF while underway because (A) they obscure your running lights (B) they ruin your night vision (C) They blind other boaters.
