FEMA is on hand at the Miramar Yacht Club (3050 Emmons Avenue) right now until 3:00 p.m. today.
The one day FEMA Applicant Registration Site has FEMA employees that are able to assist those who need help applying, answer questions and determine next steps for those who have already applied.
The FEMA site is in response to the request made at the Rapid Repairs Town Hall Meeting organized by Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein, Councilman Fidler and Assemblyman Maisel.
Aside from the destruction of Emmons Avenue’s waterfront bungalows, Hurricane Sandy also left disaster and devastation at Sheepshead Bay’s boating clubs.
The worst hit was the Sheepshead Bay Yacht Club (3076 Emmons Avenue), where boats, moorings and marinas all swept in from the ocean approximately 80 feet to the yacht clubs’s back porch, as you can see above.

We began receiving e-mails yesterday about a boat found mysteriously dumped in the middle of Emmons Avenue near Batchelder Street, blocking traffic and turning eastbound Emmons Avenue into a one-lane strip.
The first spotting we heard about was just after 7:00 a.m., where it sat for at least 24 hours before Sanitation workers arrived this morning, loaded it on a flatbed truck, and hauled it off – again at approximately 7:00 a.m.

If you’re interested in sailing, then Miramar Yacht Club is the place to learn!
Escape to an area where sailing re-awakens your senses. Feel the southerly breezes that will fill your sails and your day with experiences that make you feel vital and alive. Experience fishing in an ocean filled with snappers, blues, bass, and fluke.
But first, learn the skills you need to get on the water. Miramar offers a one-day course, packed with four hours of sailing instruction, a demonstration on an actual boat and hands-on learning. The class also comes with a colorful booklet to get you started, a guide and lunch.
The best part? By taking this class you also earn a free afternoon of real sailing in our Seek & Sail event in June. All you have to do is sign up for our class this weekend, and one of our captains will take you out on the water and put your skills to the test in June (exact date TBD).
The class is Sunday, May 6, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m at our 3050 Emmons Avenue location. Cost is $60 per student, or $100 for a couple.
