Black Rock Yacht Club “out of commission”

BRIDGEPORT — Black Rock Yacht Club was closed to members and non-members Monday, as club management surveyed the heavy flooding and structural damage and tried getting engineers to come in and appraise the club’s safety.

The dock was ripped in pieces, the restaurant and main club house were “out of commission,” and the ball room’s floor structure was lifted up by wave action, according to the club.

Richard Kyc, Elsie Adorno and Michael Kessler waded through the flooding Sunday afternoon to take in the storm first hand. Here is what they saw (videos four, five and six relate to the BRYC damage)…
