Northern Nav on the Patch

Sayville Resident's Nautical Clothing Inspired By Local Boating

WEST SAYVILLE, NY — Sayville native and teacher Timothy Leigh-Manuell grew up boating on the Great South Bay and this year found himself launching an unexpected side business. Northern Nav is an online clothing line that pays homage to boating on the South Shore of Long Island with its designs.

"It’s little things like that that helped me on the water growing up and definitely, I’m hoping to help other people on the water," Leigh-Manuell, of West Sayville says of his designs, which also include "Crazy Charlie," named for a local buoy marker and "Don’t Go Where You Don’t Know."
