No Dogs, No Wake!
With Summer here we are seeing a lot of people enjoying the Spit. We would like to remind you that Dogs are NOT allowed on the spit until after Labor Day. We not only encourage SPB supporters to say something to people with dogs on the Spit, we are COUNTING on them to do so. Simply stating the rule and walking away is a huge help.
We would like to remind all boaters about the new no wake zones and to please be aware of this change. Also, a reminder that the channel dredging was impacted due to mechanical challenges and the Covid-19 delays and that there was a little less than half of the sand that was expected to be dredged out of the channel and deposited on the Spit this year. They dredged 4000 cubic yards of sand and we were hoping for 8000+. All boaters should be very careful at low tide in the outer channel. The town is working on a plan to improve the dredging process and results for next year.
We are in need of New Seabury Village Ambassadors. As an ambassador, you will attend your village’s annual meeting and events. Your primary goal will be to liaison between SPB and the community. Meet with other village ambassadors to determine the best way to get the community involved in our mission. Skills required: passion for SPB.
