If by sea

If coming from the East, look for Red Bell "30" South of Smith's Reef, between Shippan Point and Noroton Point. Leave "30" to starboard. From "30", steer about 320-330 through Westcott Cove toward Green Flasher "1" and then Red Flasher "4". Then follow the buoyed channel to the very end past the fishing pier and breakwater to starboard; past the condos, marina, and office building to port; and past the fuel dock. Then turn left into the HYC lagoon.

If coming from the West, look for Red Bell "32" marking The Cows reef about one mile South of Shippan Point. Leave "32" to port. Steer about 045 into Westcott Cove toward Green Flasher "1", leaving it to port. Then steer about 340 toward Red Flasher "4". Then follow the buoyed channel to the very end past the fishing pier and breakwater to starboard; past the condos, marina, and office building to port; and past the fuel dock. Then turn left into the HYC lagoon.

Note: There is a navigational hazard that can be avoided. At low tide, the Westcott Cove channel shoals to approximately 4’ in one specific area. This shoal area is north of red nun 8, about 2/3 of the distance toward red nun 10. The shoal area is entirely on the East (red) side of the channel; there is deeper water on the West (green) side of the channel on a line between green cans 7 and 9.
