Tropical Storm Beryl | Brunswick, GA | Morningstar Marinas at Golden Isles



Tropical Storm Beryl paid a visit to the Golden Isles this past weekend.  There were concerns at the local marinas as the storm approached with forecast winds that were expected to be over 55 mph. 

We paid a visit to Morningstar Marina at Golden Isles to see how the boats were holding up as the winds began to build out of the North East as the storm approached landfall near Jacksonville, FL.

We were pleasantly surprised to see the Morningstar Marina at Golden Isles was well protected from the North Easterly winds that were blowing about 24 sustained with gusts of over 30. 

The vessels were all securely tied in their slips with lines and most of them had double lines added as insurance against the stronger pressure from the winds that were yet to come. 

While we were walking the docks we noticed several individuals busy at work going down the dock inspecting each vessel and making dock line adjustments as needed.  These dock hands included
Dock Masters Chick Candler and Buck Vickery along with Operations Manger Alfred Battey.  Right along side of these individuals decked out in full heavy weather gear was Chris Ferguson, General Manager.  We were impressed to see these individuals working hard on behalf of the vessel owners to protect their property. 

I dare not count the times I have seen the management staff at other marinas in the office delegating rather than being a part of the solution.  We salute the entire staff of  Morningstar Marina at Golden Isles for a job well done to prepare for Tropical Storm Beryl. 

We checked back with the management and there were no major problems at this marina for the duration of this storm. 


We have no problems giving this marina a high recommendation should you find yourself in need of a slip while you are in the area or looking for a place to call home. 

Moringstar Marina at Golden Isles is easy to find and located just off of the ICW at mile marker 675.
