The Research Vessel Nancy K, a 55’ Great Lakes fishing tug built in 1951, will be moored here in Erie with the Bayfront Maritime Center vessels in the East Canal Basin for several days. Aboard are University of Michigan Research Scientists studying plastic pollution levels in Great Lakes waters. Most of these plastic particles are tiny and can only be seen through a microscope. What they’re looking for is a nearly invisible cloud of plastic particles near the surface. Fish can confuse it with food, or swallow it by accident. These plastic particles attract chemical pollutants and can carry toxins

Message from our President

“Broadening the horizons for our young men and giving them the tools they need to succeed will require a sustained effort from all of us. Parents will have to parent — and turn off the television, and help with homework.

New Covers for the EASE Access Dinghies

Over the weekend Bren and Mike picked up the new EASE Access Dinghy covers.  They are fantastic! Thanks to the friends and family of the late Donald L. Smith, for the memorial contributions sent to BMC. Don was an avid sailor and a boat builder, so his daughter thought that it would be fitting that the funds be used for our adaptive sailing program, EASE. Due to this kind gesture, we were able to purchase new tarps for our Access Sailing Dinghies, which BMC use to teach sailing to children with developmental and physical disabilities.
