Using the Tide and Currents when Planning a Trip


Not long ago vessels used to depart "on the tide". Mariners have long used tide calendars and current charts to find ways to get a free boost from nature. Closely watching weather forecasts helped avoid headwinds or adverse sea conditions, with an occasional boost from tailwinds or waves.


With years of cheap fuel and bigger engines, tidal currents seem to have lost their importance. In today's world of higher fuel prices (and less time to enjoy the boat) careful scheduling and routing can take advantage of tides, currents and predicted winds to save both money and time. Remember, a straight line between two points on the water is not necessarily the best course. Plan your route and timing using currents.

New Hope for Lobsters in the Sound


Fairfield County's lobster industry has been decimated over the past 15 years, and a new bill signed into law by Gov. Dannel Malloy last Friday is giving the few remaining lobstermen hope of reviving the population of the marine crustacean in Long Island Sound.


After years of speculation, there is now enough empirical evidence to suggest that the pesticides methropene and resmethrin, aimed at killing mosquitoes has killed off huge numbers of lobsters after washing into the Sound through sewer drains.
