    Published on Sep 4, 2017 FAIRHAVEN HARBORMASTER AND ASSISTANT RESCUE BOATER OFF HOPPY'S LANDING Todd Cox, acting Harbormaster along with Shellfish Warden Richard Dube were at Hoppy's Landing when a distraught female approached them at the dock and stated that her husband was overboard from a capsized sailboat off Hoppy's Landing. The capsized boat could be seen from the dock, but upon arrival, the boater could not be found. He was later rescued from the rocky edge of Hoppy's Point. The wind was blowing out of the southwest up to 30 knots at the time of the incident, Monday, September 4, 2017 at 1PM. The only person on the boat was pulled to safety by Harbormaster Todd Cox and assistant Richard Dube. The victim, Jeremy Messier of Dartmouth, did not require any hospitalization by the Fairhaven Fire Dept which responded to the scene. Mr Messier was happy to see his wife and retrieve his boat. *ML's Note: When the boat capsized off Hoppy's Landing - the boater tried to get his rudder back while his vessel drifted out of reach in the 30 knot winds.

    Deadly wind chills and frozen sea spray advisories on March 5, 2017 at this spot on the Causeway have long been forgotten just 4 months later. Amazing seasonal changes in New England are legendary. While our "snowbirds" enjoyed the warm Florida sun, the temperature on March 5, 2017 was as low as 11.8 degrees with a wind chill of 8 below zero. Gale warnings were in place as we prepared for a Nor'Easter. Today, July 16, 2017, Hazy, Hot, and Humid conditions at 77.2F and a comfortable seabreeze embraced beach goers as they swam in the 73 degree water, at the same spot just 16 weeks later!

    A FOG BANK ENGULFED WEST ISLAND AFTER A THUNDERSTORM A typical late May "upper-level disturbance" (aka a thunderstorm) passed through Buzzards Bay and The Cape, this Wednesday afternoon, May 31, 2017. A rolling fog bank came in quickly overtaking the island and our cameras, but made for a cool clip. Enter the sound and wide screen for best viewing. As the last day of May departed along with this storm system, a dreary weather pattern this afternoon was a good send-off to one of the top 6 wettest Mays on record in the region. June is on shaky ground for a possible repeat. Almost twice as much rain fell for the month than usual. *ML's Note: Our Weather Review stats for the month will be posted shortly.

    Sunrise from Long Island looking east over West Island and Buzzards Bay, Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 521AM. Partly cloudy days this time of the year, can render incredible sunrise and sunset events. Light angles, color and the sea shower you with rich, vibrant color and contrast, unfortunately for a brief moment. The temperature was 59.3 and the ocean was 55 degrees. The wind out of the southwest at 6, gusting to 9MPH. The humidity was on the rise at 83%, with air-conditioners being turned on for the first time (if you have one) by Thursday. A classic New England contrast in weather from cold, wet and raw a couple of days ago to hazy, hot and humid.

    Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School students constructed and built almost 2 dozen picnic tables for a tri-town area. It was a student produced, community service project. Fairhaven Juniors Tara Cox and Lexi Lees thought of the idea for this project for the annual SKILLS USA, a national vocational school competition. A grant from Lowe's Home Improvements provided the lumber, materials and tools. Big Wheels Towing tranported the tables free of charge to New Bedford, Dartmouth and at Long Island - Hoppy's Landing in Fairhaven. "Visitors to Hoppy's Landing will now be able to enjoy spectacular views of Buzzards Bay from these tables." said Tim Cox, Fairhaven Harbormaster. Vegetation and landscaping indigenous to Long Island will also be planted under the supervision of vegetation expert Louise Barteaux of West Island. NB Voc-Tech received a 3rd Place-Bronze Award on the state level for this project. (*ML's Note: : Last year, they came in first.)
