Atlantic Coast Marine Response crews responded to a sailing yacht that had been driven ashore in heavy weather along the eastern shore of Virginia in early January 2020. The vessel was located in a sensitive marine environment in the Chesapeake Bay. Crews worked to secure a salvage plan that would prevent the release of oil into the water. Salvage operations were completed on January 7th with no further incident.
