Land Meets Land; Norton Point Breach Closes

Vineyard Gazette
By Sara Brown
April 2, 2015


As of early in the morning on April 2, Chappaquiddick was no longer an island completely separated from Martha’s Vineyard.

Nearly eight years after a northeaster cut a breach in the three-mile barrier beach that often connects Edgartown with the smaller island, the Norton Point breach had closed.

Breach now closed, a cove has formed. — Bill Brine

“It’s pinched off,” Chris Kennedy, The Trustees of Reservations superintendent for Martha’s Vineyard, told the Gazette Thursday morning. “Basically we no longer have flowing water going from the Edgartown harbor into the ocean.”

Kittery Trading Post has a great upcoming event. On May 2nd from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. KTP will be having a "Try Before You Buy" surf casting demo day. The event will take place on the Kittery Trading Post docks behind the main store in Kittery, Maine. There is a nice lagoon there to test these new products and really see what they have to offer and test it out.

St. Croix, Penn, and Bomber lures are bringing their newest product for anyone to try. There will be special deals on fishing products in the store as well as coupons and giveaways from the manufacturers themselves. St. Croix and Penn are building a surf combo to give away in a raffle for anyone who test casts their new product. It should be a fun event with the opportunity to go home with some great stuff.

As of April 2, 2015 the Norton Point Breach has now closed after being open for 8 years! A nice Spring gift from Mother Nature to get us all excited about the 2015 fishing season. It is absolutely amazing the changes that have taken place over the years and how it is almost put back together again. Will it last?...only time will tell.

Check out the pictures provided by Ron Domurat.
