Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

A letter signed by 447 people was sent to Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, stating:

“A walkable shoulder is an unacceptable substitute for a proper bicycle lane and sidewalk, and the absence of a bike lane and sidewalk will unnecessarily endanger pedestrians, cyclists and joggers.”

Essential Emergency Gear For Anglers

Friday, 03 August 2012 00:00

Weather is always the subtext for a safe boating trip

Anglers down in the Gulf remember this tragic event: three friends, two of them NFL players, lost after their boat capsized during a fishing trip in March 2009. A fourth was rescued after clinging to the hull in 63-degree water for almost two days. As an offshore angler, you would never want to find yourself unprepared in such a desperate situation. If fishing takes you far offshore, make sure you know your limits.

Get advanced training. Boating education is widely available and includes classroom and online training offered through the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA), United States Power Squadrons (USPS) and state boating agencies. Advanced training in navigation, seamanship, boat handling and weather are important to know before you venture into open waters. Local knowledge and recommendations from experienced captains who run offshore fishing charters can be valuable as well.

Benefit for the Matthew Fetzer Foundation for children with cancer

On June 16, Sagamore Yacht Club hosted the 13th Annual Friends of Oyster Bay (FOB) Race and Post Race Party for the benefit of the Matthew Fetzer Foundation — which helps children with cancer.

The Matthew Fetzer Foundation in Bayville is a charity founded by the parents of Matthew Fetzer, a young child who succumbed to the ravages of cancer. It was through the years of his valiant battle that his parents came to realize that so many children were in this same situation, battling for their lives, and were losing whatever little childhood they could have.
