Norwalk Harbor has a 6 mile per hour speed limit which extends all the way up the river within 100 feet of moored vessels and 300 feet from the shore.  The speed zone begins at the Flashing Red "10" Rockpile by the Manresa Island power plant when approaching from the West and from the Quick Flashing Red  "14" rockpile off Calf Pasture Point when approaching from the East. It extends past the moored boats mid harbor and all the way North.    


Please remember you share the harbor with other boaters, kayakers, windsurfers, kiteboarders, sailing schools and stand up paddle boarders !

Check the Weather on the Water Before you Leave Home 


The Norwalk Cove Weather Station link is in the blue margin to the left in every Harbor Talk. Add it as a favorite to your computer, tablet or phone.

What kind of information is available ? Humidity, Temperature, Dew Point, Barometric Pressure, Wind Speed and Direction, A Barometric graph of the last six hours and a Wind Speed graph.  

The dew point is the temperature below which the water vapor in a volume of humid air at a given constant barometric pressure will condense into liquid water at the same rate at which it evaporates. Condensed water is called dew when it forms on a solid surface.
The graphic barometer indicates trend. Generally, a rising barometer indicates clearing weather and a falling barometer, stormy weather.

Boater Safety Regulations - New York is finally catching up 


New York State is on the verge of passing tough new Boater Safety regulations requiring all boaters to attend a boater safety course and hold a boating safety certificate. The Bill (A03471) has been passed in the state assembly and referred to the senate transportation committee for review. Previously, only those 18 and younger were required to obtain certification. The training is offered by the state Department of Parks, by the Coast Guard Auxiliary and Power Squadrons and by private providers. 

Spurred on by the tragic boat capsize in Long

Island, New York has been one of twenty odd states with less stringent certification requirements.  


Connecticut has lead the nation with it's tough boater training and certification requirements. New Connecticut regulations initiated this year requires that new boaters apply online for a Connecticut Conservation Identification Number (ID) prior to taking the 8 hour Boating Safety Course (BSC) and then purchasing a printable boating certificate. Plastic cards are no longer being issued.
