I want to be a Yacht Captain !

Why is a Nor'easter a Big Deal ?


Typically found along the east coast of the US & Canada, a Nor'easter is a macro storm named from the direction the wind is coming from. It starts when a large cyclonic low pressure system passes just off the east coast and picks up energy as the converging polar cold air meets the warmer ocean air warmed by the gulf stream. Winds in the left-forward quadrant rotate onto land from the northeast and the waves start building. 


Not unlike a hurricane, a Nor'easter is cyclonic and spins to the left. The combination of higher velocity winds on the storm's left side and the forward movement of the storm can add to its strength.


If the winds alone weren't enough, the fetch of Long Island Sound allows waves to build to dangerous and damaging levels. With heavy rain, hurricane force winds and huge waves building, coastal damage and erosion is virtually guaranteed.

The Aquarium is Sponsoring a "Name the Boat" Contest  

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is looking for local students to help choose a name for its new research vessel in a "Name the Boat" contest open to Norwalk students in grades three through 12.  


The Maritime Aquarium's $2.7 million, 65-foot catamaran is being built at the Robert E. Derecktor shipyard in Mamaroneck, N.Y., and is expected to make its debut in late spring.
