It’s On!! The Make Commercial Fishing Great Again Flotilla 2017

After reaching out to multiple agencies involved with security for the upcoming presidential visit to the Coast Guard Academy’s graduation ceremony this coming Wednesday, May 17th it has been decided we should move forward. As of now we have been told there will be a 500 yard security zone around the Academy. (This is subject to change) Hopefully we will be allowed to go north of the Rt.95 bridge which is just south of the Academy. If not we are certain there will be plenty of media folks all over and we are reaching out to several outlets in CT. to make them aware of our plans. Again, we can’t emphasize enough that this is a show of support and not a protest. We in no way shape or form want to upstage the events taking place at the Academy. In fact it would be a great gesture to have some make signs congratulating the Academy’s 2017 graduating class. We realize this is short notice and have been working hard with the authorities making them aware we are not there to take away from these Cadets’ special day. We also realize that this event could cut into your fishing time. However the importance of this event cannot be over stated and hopefully the short term loss will be made up for in long term gain. This is our goal. Read the full notice here. 08:50
