UK Marina Conference - 2015 WORLD NEWS After the tsunami, better than ever USA: Three years after being devastated by the tsunami that was triggered by the 2011 earthquake in Japan, Santa Cruz Harbor in California is looking better than it ever did before. The marina is back in full operation with all docks in working order. The marina was rebuilt through a series of bids with a final price tag close to million. Twenty of the docks were replaced and approximately 470 berths. The guest dock, boatyard dock and a portion of the rowing docks were also rebuilt. Bellingham Marine worked as the general contractor for much of the rebuild. “The Harbor was able to use a number of the existing pilings, which proved to be a tremendous saving in both time and expense,” said Steve Canaday, Bellingham manager of project development. There was, nonetheless, a lot of work including landside utility installations. Over the course of the rebuild more than 15 new utility vaults were installed and over Santa Cruz Harbor in California has been substantially rebuilt and upgraded and is now in full operation. 15,000 linear feet of conduit was laid to accommodate upgrades to the marina’s electrical system. The Port District began its rebuild efforts just three months after the tsunami hit. U-dock, which sustained the most damage, was the first to be tackled. Following this, the rest of the docks that were damaged beyond repair were replaced. According to the Harbor, the order of dock replacement Eden Marina will soon expand by 45 berths was determined by need based on the extent of damage each dock had sustained and the amount of funding available. “It’s been a long process but our tenants have been great through it all,” said port director, Lisa Ekers. “Our driving goal was to move as fast as possible with the funds available and to keep the daily disruptions to the harbour to a minimum.” The 2015 BMF Annual UK Marina Conference will be held 22 nd -23 rd April in Southampton, Hampshire. Key themes for this year will be ‘learning from other customer service led industries’ and ‘how to access EU funding to improve and invest in your marina’. The popular two-day event will include an industry visit to Berthon Marina & Boatyard, an £18 million business with a history that dates back to the first America’s Cup. Delegates will discover how the family-run facility has grown over the years and how it champions marine apprenticeships. The conference programme has been developed by the British Marine Federation (BMF) in association with the UK/Europe Certified Marina Manager (CMM) Group and the event is sponsored by Walcon Marine.
