Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update December 6th, 2018 #RealEstate #NJ

A sailboat washed ashore in Sea Isle City this past weekend. T
he Sea Isle City water tower and the Spinnaker Condominiums are visible in the background.

STRANDED SAILBOAT:  A sailboat became stranded on Sea Isle City’s 61st Street beach this past weekend.  Reports indicate the boat was enroute from Connecticut to Florida when the captain anchored offshore; when the anchor failed, the boat later washed ashore.  The boat is expected to be removed from the beach in the next several days.  Check out aerial footage of the boat here:

A LARGE FIRE destroyed a duplex and severely damaged two others at 54th Street & Landis Avenue in Sea Isle last week, and claimed the life of an 89-year-old woman, while injuring two others.  Fire crews from Sea Isle City, Strathmere, Ocean City, Seaville, Belleplain, and Avalon battled the fire.  The Sea Isle Police Department gratefully acknowledged the neighbors and the Sea Isle community in general for providing food and drink for first responders during the 24-hour operation.  The Sea Isle community has also rallied around the families struck by the tragedy by donating food, shelter, clothing, and financial assistance.

HONORING GEORGE H.W. BUSH:  As the nation mourned the passing of President George H. W. Bush, U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May honored him with canon fire and the U.S. flag flown at half-mast.  Captain Owen Gibbons, commanding officer of TraCen Cape May, said “U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May sends our heartfelt condolences to the Bush family.”
