The Manager's Desk
July 1, 2016: It certainly feels like summer in Annapolis. This time of year always reminds me of why I enjoy living in such a wonderful town. The waters are full with people enjoying their boats, downtown streets are bustling with shoppers with ice cream cones in hand and the EYC deck is in full swing with members enjoying a cold cocktail, a terrific bite to eat and a great view.
July is packed with fun things for club members of all ages. As if enjoying the best view in Annapolis weren’t enough, the month starts off with a bang (literally) with the July 4th celebration, followed by the Chesapeake Stand Up Paddleboard Challenge, the newly revamped Boomerang race, St. Michaels cruise, powerboat classes, Junior sailing and the list goes on and on.
June 1, 2016: One of the club’s busiest months of the year is now behind us but the summer season is just beginning! The club is alive with activity this time of the year and of course the outside deck overlooking the water is the perfect place to be to enjoy the start of another great EYC boating season.
Keep an eye out for all of the terrific House Committee events planned for June. Of course June means that EYC will once again play host to the Leukemia Cup on the 4th. The club is attempting to set a new record for donations so please come down and enjoy a cold rum drink and enjoy the evening while supporting the greater good.
April 1, 2016: Mother Nature has not been terribly accommodating for our annual sock burning for a number of years now but that didn’t stop the festivities! Many of our members threw on their flip flops and headed down to the club to the annual ritual to welcome in Spring. Socks were burned, cocktails were consumed and fun was had by all!
So now that we are official let’s start getting ready for a terrific boating season and enjoying our beautiful clubhouse. The House Committee has some terrific events planned and our staff has officially opened the outside deck for those nicer days. It’s the best time of year at the club so come down and join your friends for a nice meal and one of our signature cocktails!

Spring and Summer Reminders
As the active club season is already upon us I thought I would take a moment to remind members of some important club information that will help keep both our members and the club safe.
- Alcohol purchased at the club may not be taken off premise or onto the docks or private boats. Members may take their cocktails onto the waterfront lawn or sailing yard however. Conversely members and their guests may consume their own alcoholic beverages (purchased elsewhere) on their boats while docked in the marina but it may not be brought onto the clubs property.

2016 Commodore’s Ball
Take off your scuba equipment, the water-themed Ball is over! This year’s event thrown by our own Commodore Heather Ersts was a terrific success. The attendance was great and those in attendance danced the night away after feasting on Chef Henry’s tasty morsels as well as a fresh sushi bar prepared by authentic sushi chefs.
Keep your eyes peeled for all the great photos of the event on the EYC website and for those who couldn’t attend … you missed a great party but we will see you next year!
