Maritime Heritage Day
The first Amagansett Maritime Heritage Day was inaugurated on October 12, 2019. In collaboration with the East Hampton Historical Society, the Amagansett Free Library, and the East End Classic Boat Society, we commemorate the rich and unique story of the Amagansett community and its relationship to the sea around us.
In observation of the second annual Amagansett Maritime Heritage Day on Oct. 17, 2020, the Amagansett Station produced a short documentary with filmmaker and director, Tim Regan, titled Resurgence. LTV helped us to commemorate the day by airing the World Premiere of Resurgence.
The film gives a bird’s-eye view of the migration of marine mammals off the coast of Long Island, specifically East Hampton and Southampton, capturing the beauty and grace of some of the world’s most elegant and synchronized ocean predators.
About the filmmaker
Tim Regan is a local artist and fisherman. An N.Y.S. fishing guide, casting from shore about 350 days per year in both salt and fresh water, he films much of it for his Instagram/YouTube channel “South Fork Salt.” Tim is a Field Editor at On The Water Magazine, where he writes feature articles and the weekly Long Island fishing report. He is an advocate for conservation, using his observations to spread awareness about our local ecosystems. This summer, the N.Y.S.-D.E.C. & the American Saltwater Guides Association used his footage of breaching whales to promote responsible boating practices and responsible management of the Atlantic Menhaden fishery. He builds lures, ties flies, body surfs, and captures some incredible images of the wildlife that frequents the East End.
