Holiday Fun at EYC

EYCTreeWinter is here but the fun goes on indoors at EYC in December, starting with Decorating the Clubhouse and a festive 'Get Your Elf On' Party that evening, followed by the Lights Parade, Cookie Exchange, Children's Gingerbread House Party, New Year's Eve Celebration and on into 2018 with the annual New Year's Day Football & Pot Luck Extravaganza!

Our Dining Room service schedule will have a few interruptions, but remember that when the dining room's closed, the bar and deck remain open. Don't forget that brunch will be available at the club on Sundays, December 24 and 31.

Many EYC holiday events are casual, drop-in affairs, but some require reservations. These always go quickly, so DON'T WAIT. Whatever events you choose, don't forget to bring a contribution to put in one of the large decorated boxes in the lobby. We're collecting again this year for the Light House Shelter and SPCA's Presents for Paws.

On Saturday, December 2, join the hijinks at the 'Get Your Elf On' Party, starting at 5 p.m. Save your pot luck recipe for New Year's Day, come help finish the decorating, enjoy small plate specials in the bar along with cocktail specials like a Cranberry Cordial or Eggnog Shooter! Chief Chef Elf Henry, using his elf name of Tootsie Toe-Bells, will have fantastic holiday specials along with his regular menu for the dining room as well as the bar. 

ElvesHangoverBrunchWebWear your elf hat or wear a name tag with your elf name printed on it and get a drink ticket. Check the flyers around the clubhouse or the website on how to find your elf name and then come on in for your libation. Hideous holiday sweaters welcome!

Don't forget to wear your 'jammies to brunch the next morning!Dirty Blonde 20

Lights Parade on Saturday, December 9, is a members-only event at the clubhouse. In addition to immediate family (living under the same roof), each member may bring no more than two guests ($10 each). Instead of our regular dinner service, a buffet supper will be available for $19 for adults and $9 for children. See the menu here.

The clubhouse will close at 3 p.m. and reopen at 5 for Lights Parade. The show glitters on the water between 6 and 8 p.m. Please remember that parking will be a particular challenge and make your transportation plans accordingly. Outfitters will be on hand betwen 5 and 9:30 p.m. for your holiday shopping convenience.


The next afternoon, Sunday, December 10, is reserved for the 6th Annual EYC Cookie Exchange starting at 4 p.m. this year Get more details here on this event that has become an important club tradition.

S09gingerbread17peaking of important club traditions, everyone with children or grandchildren looks forward to the annual Children's Gingerbread House Building Party, complete with lunch and a visit from Santa! The fun begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 16. Parents, please bring $5, two tubes of icing, and candy decorations to share for each child.

THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT. Sorry, but walk-ins cannot be accommodated. A WAIT LIST is forming. (And if you have reservations you find you won't be using, please contact the office immediately so other children can be accommodated. Thank you.)


ElfJayIf you can't get space at the decorating party for your children or grandchildren, don't despair! They're all welcome to join the fun to welcome Santa as he arrives around noon (by boat, weather permitting) and stick around for a chat and a photo or two with the Jolly Old Elf.

After brunch on the 24th, the clubhouse will close at 3 p.m. and remain closed all day on Monday, December 25, to reopen at noon as usual on Tuesday, December 26. 

Then it's time to think about the turning of the year. Brunch will be available until 2 p.m. on December 31, when the kitchen will switch to a limited menu in anticipation of the big night.

Celebrate the arrival of 2018 with great spin on an old tradition. Our New Year's dinner runs from 6 until 10 p.m. with specials for the kids, and some very festive special selections for the adults, plus a limited regular menu for both. Reservations are strongly recommended.

There will be plenty of music and food and beverages available past the midnight fireworks, along with a champagne toast at midnight, so plan on spending your NY's Eve with your friends at the best fireworks viewing spot in town. 

Then keep the party going on New Year’s Day at your favorite yacht club. One of our favorite traditions: the New Year’s Day Football and Pot Luck Extravaganza! The kitchen will be closed, but the bar will be open. There's no cover charge, but be sure to bring cash to tip the bartenders and a $20 bill or two for the 50/50 raffle to benefit the EYC Juniors! Bring something delicious to share, whether it be something you’ve whipped up specially, last night’s leftovers, or even takeout for the culinarily challenged. Bring your own trays, crock pots, extension cords, serving utensils, too (and don’t forget to take them home); the kitchen and its contents will not be available. The fun starts at 11:30 a.m. and runs through the end of the Rose Bowl game.

Welcome to EYC

Not your traditional blue blazer club, EYC is built on activity, on the water and ashore. Our members are involved in a diverse range of boating activities, supported by social events and strong camaraderie. Known for our million-dollar view of the Severn River and Annapolis, EYC also is recognized in the Chesapeake Bay region and beyond as a club capable of managing major championship regattas, Friday night Beer Can races, and everything in between, as well as providing great social networking for cruising, parties, and charity events. It’s all about life on the water, and all about fun.
