Outfitters will help you toss your hats!
You know that great moment when June graduates throw their hats in the air as a sign of achieving a major milestone? Outfitters will be up to to the challenge of ensuring EYC that everyone will have plenty of hats to toss for all achievements. We will be offering not just one or two hats to choose from--we will have four different types of baseball caps this summer!
One choice will be Anvil “Sandwich Trim Pigment-Dyed Twill cap” in Aqua, Flamingo, Red Rock, and Taupe colors. It features six panels and a low profile with a fabric hook-and-loop closure to adjust the size.
Next is the Adams Optimum Pigment Dyed-cap in Seafoam, Coral, Caribbean Blue, and White. This cap has a “Cool-Crown” mesh lining for those of you who boat enthusiastically and it comes with a leather strap.
Another cool option is the Port Authority “Cool Release” cap that is made of Coolon moisture wicking technology which makes it fast drying. It is also light weight. Colors are White, Navy, and Ultra Marine.
And finally (whew!) from Fahrenheit Headwear is a two-toned cap in washed cotton with hook and loop closure. It will be available in Charcoal & Natural, Indigo & Natural, Vintage Red & Natural, and Saddle Brown & Natural. ps Outfitters will also replenish its stock of visors in Royal, Stone, Navy, and White.
In addition to caps, Outfitters will offer women a Port Authority performance polo in Hyperblue, Oceanblue, True Navy, and Violet/Purple. It is nicely styled with a hem that hits lower on the hips. Also for women, a Charles River 100% cotton polo in Bay Blue, Carolina Blue, and Melon.
For men, we will have also a 100% cotton Charles River polo in Seaside, White, and Mint. Port Authority makes a smooth performance polo which is moisture-wicking, odor-fighting, and wrinkle resistant. The colors will be True Royal, Tropic Blue, and True Red.
Finally, don’t forget to grab your camera and/or phone to start getting great pictures of your on-water adventures. Outfitters will soon have an e-link so you can download pictures directly.
There’s a lot of talk these days on the media about ancestry. Where did we come from? Just provide some saliva, send in a few bucks and back comes a pie chart showing ethnicity and geographic origins.
Ever wonder just how EYC came about? Well there’s a short blurb on our web site and new members get a brief brain dump on EYC’s origins, but these are snapshots at best.
Several years ago, a small group of old hands started gathering data on our club. Meeting minutes, photos, newsletters and anything that spoke to our origins quickly filled a filing cabinet, several boxes and part of one of the club’s store rooms. Stories, anecdotes, and recollections of our founders, past commodores and long time members gave further life to the hard copy. The idea of doing a book that traced our history and video-taping the early members quickly evolved.
This three year effort has resulted in a book, Eastport Yacht Club: Back to the Future 1980-2015, and an accompanying DVD of first hand accounts. $30 and available from Outfitters!
