If you are Planning a 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. It's an economical and easy to visit close 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 Dock or Rack Customers (Members) of either Cove or Rex and part of the Long Island Loop Cruising Club to receive discounts. Slips are based on availability, and you must show your membership card..

Were you on your boat when the  

                                        power went out 10 years ago ?  


On our mooring in Norwalk harbor, having just finished a picnic supper aboard, we were astonished to see the lights ashore go out as if a magic wand waived first over Sono and then around to East Norwalk. Eventually, only the lights of cars ashore and the running lights of boats in the channel were visible.


Instantly, there were no landmarks and for some, a real test of navigation. A great night to spend on the boat, with plenty of power and movies on the laptop!

And remember, it's Hurricane Season.  Are you prepared and have plans in place for a potentially active season ?   It's also that time of year where quick moving fronts can come through with strong winds and heavy rain.
