Another way to view Sailfest fireworks
New London — The New London Maritime Society has announced that it is hosting a livestream of New London Harbor during Sailfest, including the fireworks Saturday night.
The New London Harborcam, fastened to a flagpole atop the Custom House Maritime Museum on Bank Street, faces southeast toward Long Island Sound, providing round-the-clock views out to the New London Ledge Light and Race Rock lighthouses. Find it on the Maritime Society website, nlmaritimesociety.org.
The camera was donated and installed by Ervis Rusi of Eagle Electrical Services of Waterford.
