Pine Orchard Yacht & Country Club, Branford, CT • 7 - 9pm

We Welcome Area Yacht Club and Marina Stakeholders

Resilience is defined as..."an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change.”  Resilient design, particularly in areas faced with potential damage from floods, waves, and winds is a hot topic in the coastal community and critical for those who in charge of managing valuable waterfront assets to understand.

Yacht clubs and marinas have unique needs in maintaining resiliency in their waterfront assets, such as structural repairs and replacement, shoreline stabilization, dredging, and long-term planning. These challenges are further complicated by storm preparations and damage response.  With recent storm damage from Hurricanes Irene and Sandy and changing regulatory trends, RACE Coastal Engineering will host informational round table sessions with yacht club and marina stakeholders.

We will be joined by Gowrie Group Insurance to share storm preparation and risk management expertise along with case study experiences and insights. RACE Coastal Engineering will discuss our experience in helping facility owners recover from storm events, as well as address strategies and improvements to maintain and develop resilient facilities for the future.

The agenda will include:

  1. Storm Preparation and Managing Risk

  2. Storm Damage Assessment and Response (including structural issues such as piers, docks,  pilings, seawalls, foundations, breakwaters, and more)

  3. Facility Planning for a Resilient Future

  4. Open Discussion Regarding Your Experiences and Questions

We look forward to bringing stakeholders in our region together for meaningful discussion about these critical topics. If you are interested in attending, please contact us at (203) 377-0663 or
