School is in session! Well not for some of us who are long past those years but at least for our kids and grandchildren. We wish everyone a great beginning to the school year and we hope to continue to see our families on the weekends and perhaps a special night out in the middle of the week during the school year.

The recent heat is a clear indication that summer has us firmly in its grasp. While working on the boat, enjoying a regatta or participating in one of our terrific sailing classes we want to remind everyone to hydrate and take time to cool down in the air conditioning when possible. We have seen a few people suffer the symptoms of heat stroke and we want guarantee that there are no severe cases at our club. Headache, nausea and fatigue are but a few of the early symptoms to keep an eye on.
We also ask that we all help with identifying these symptoms in our smallest members of our club, the kids, since they may not know to do so on their own. Safety is our highest priority! Besides what better place is there to cool down than in the clubhouse enjoying the best view in Annapolis!

Four legged Friends
We definitely love our furry family members but although EYC is like a home away from home for many of our members it can’t be for our pets. Pets must remain on leashes and be supervised by their owners at all times. Although there are many dog lovers at the club remember not everyone is comfortable with animals so please respect those fellow members. Also, note that the club provides waste removal bags near the waterfront lawn so please always pick up after your pet. We have been noticing an increase in “items left behind” on our lawn and hope our dog owners will take corrective action.

Boy it is great to be around a yacht club at this time of the year! I hope all of our members are enjoying the summer and the wealth of activities that the Eastport Yacht Club offers. Of course, July is full of great events and activities such as the July 4th Celebration cookout and fireworks display, the July 4th Cruise hosted by the always active Cruise Committee, the Boomerang Regatta, Stand Up Paddleboard Challenge, Beer Can Races, Green Fleet Fridays and the House Committee’s Bastille Day Celebration to name just a few of the events in the first TWO WEEKS of the month! AMAZING! Check your calendar and weekly Blast for dates and times and as always feel free to contact the office for any questions that you might have.

Welcome our New Staff!
As I wrote about in last month’s VFB we are thrilled to have Glenn Looney join our terrific team as the new Assistant General Manager. His extensive experience in clubs will certainly bolster the services to our members and we look forward to his fresh ideas! We are also welcoming back a familiar face. Some of our more tenured members may remember Chef Nik Holm from the old clubhouse. Nik has returned as the club’s sous chef and we are very excited to bring another element to our kitchen. Of course, Nik knows the history of EYC and developed and prepared many of the old favorites which might just make an appearance on our current menus and special boards. Welcome back Nik!
