July 1, 2014: School is out, sailing season is in full swing, and water activities are required … it must be summer in Annapolis! EYC has activities galore for our members so be sure to take a look at the calendar of events to find out what our hard working committees have in store for this season. Great cruises, competitive regattas, junior sailing and terrific landside events pack a fun filled calendar.
Fourth of July at the Eastport Yacht Club
It seems like a no-brainer! Why wouldn't you come down and see the fireworks in all their glory from Eastport Yacht Club? This year we will have a new twist on our food offerings. Not only will we be serving a July Fourth-style casual buffet in the dining room but we will also offer a la carte grill service on the lawn.
We’ll have live music from the Dan Haas Band from 6 p.m. until the fireworks start around 9:15, so waiting for the sun to set and the show to begin will be pleasant – even fun.
There is no restriction on the number of guests for this event and we welcome you and your family and friends to join us for the fun. Tickets may be purchased at the door for both guest entrance fees ($10) and for the food buffet. The hard-working House Committee is also looking for a few volunteers to help sell tickets and entrance fees at the gate for short shifts so you can still enjoy the fireworks and the fun.
New Food and Beverage Specials at EYC
One of the nice “percs” of membership is the amazing value that can be found in our food and beverage offerings. Of course most members are aware of some of our old standards like Burger Night, Prime Rib Night, Taco Sunday and Windy Wednesday Happy Hour but if that were not enough we are extending even more value to our members in the month of June and July. Check the calendar for all the details but tempting themed nights such as Mangia Monday Italian Night, a French themed night on Wednesday, late night discounted drinks, ½ price bottles of wine, ½ priced craft beer night on Saturday and the list goes on and on! Basically the club offers great food with great pricing EVERY night of the week so read your Blast for the nightly details and come down to your club and enjoy our amazing cuisine and beverage offerings at the best prices around!
You may know already that our marina boasts 100% tenancy for both the wet and dry slips. But what you may not know is that EYC is a Clean Marina as certified by the Department of Natural Resources. I have recently completed the requirements for the DNR Clean Marina certification for 2014 and we are proud to extend our certification this year.
We ask not only our marina tenants but our membership at large to familiarize themselves with the location of the fuel spill kits near the hoist as well as to be advocates to keep our marina and our club clean and green! We will also be holding a seminar on the subject in the not too distant future for which we encourage all members to attend. We will share specifics about our property as well as recommendations from DNR to better protect the natural resources that we all enjoy daily.
