Rules of the Road Review 

You (Boat A) are leaving the Norwalk town dock after a great lunch in SONO and decide to head out to the Sheffield light house before heading home.  


As you head South and pass Can "19" and are next to the Shore and Country Club dock, a boat (Boat B) is coming out of the main Norwalk Cove Marina channel with the intention of heading South.


At the same time another boat (Boat C) is heading North in the channel heading toward the marina, and is just past Can "17" , almost abeam of "M" (mega) dock.


Who goes first ?  Who is "Stand On" ?   Who is "Give Way" ?

A New Boating Destination:  

                    The Beer Garden @ Harbor Point


Located on the water in Stamford's Harbor Point Square, The Beer Garden has transient deep water dockage and easy access by boat. It offers a spectacular private bar room with its own outdoor terrace on the second floor with views of Long Island Sound. 


Featuring 24 craft beers on draft showcasing hard to find ales from Dogfish Head, Captain Lawrence, Curious Traveler and local Connecticut brewers Thomas Hooker, Half Full and Two Roads, it promises to be a beer lover's nirvana. It also offers "a collection of hand crafted American-centric cocktails that provide a refreshing alternative to great beer".


A rotating collection of Gourmet Food trucks slotted along the Beer Garden's driveway will provide a culinary bounty. Lobster Rolls & Crab Cakes from Lobstercraft, Wood Fired Farm to Table Pizzas from Skinny Pines, Sandwiches from Hot Off The Grill, Authentic Caribbean from Maddy's and Gourmet Grilled Cheese from Melt Mobile will all be part of the experience.      For More............

Practice Safe Boating, Have a Designated Skipper   

The Americas Cup Countdown Begins 


Last year the 12 teams competing for the Americas  Cup were practice racing in 45 foot high speed catamarans (see last September's article and videos here). The actual 2013 challenger selection and cup match will be sailed in incredibly powerful 72 foot catamarans capable of 40-plus knot speeds.   


With the Cup races in San Francisco only 4 months away, the teams are setting up bases and practicing a new sailing technique called "foiling" where the entire boat rises out of the water on a carbon fiber daggerboard foil.  It truly must be seen to be believed !
