Harbor Watch Presentation

Harbor Watch explained their mission at the February 2017 meeting, and FC Tim Burke is exploring possible partnerships. They are based at Earthplace in Westport.

Harbor Watch promotes clean water in Long Island Sound by monitoring sea life, water conditions and storm drains in Fairfield County waters and tributaries, and sharing their findings with stakeholders and the scientific community. They also have education programs and opportunities for volunteers.

Penfield Light
Flotilla 77, Fairfield, Connecticut

Flotilla 77 is based at South Benson Marina, near Penfield Beach in Fairfield, Connecticut. We can see this historic lighthouse from our Flotilla base. It is also a boater's landmark that should be thoroughly charted because of the low tides and rock formations called “The Cows.”

We provide the public opportunities to earn a Connecticut Safe Boating Certificate by offering classes from spring to fall each year. The certificate is required to operate most vessels in Connecticut waters.

We invite you to join our monthly Flotilla meetings. A wealth of information can be learned as staff officers give their respective reports. Boating information, patrols, search and rescue, communications, public affairs, aids to navigation and more are discussed.
