January and the Living is Easy?
January is not for the faint of heart, unless you are one of those lucky ones headed down for Key West Racing Week. The group of sailors I know who go down there SWEAR it is a serious race. That said, I’m not sure why so many check into Betty Ford afterwards. What of the rest of us who must get through this month?
Chesapeake Holiday Season
December 1, 2014: I cannot fight it anymore. My daughter is humming Christmas tunes. My son is telling me what he would like to do with the GoPro video camera he thinks he will find under the tree.
What Does the Future of EYC Hold?
A Request for Member Thought…
October 1, 2014: For some time in my communications with the members, I have been alluding to a need to discuss “the future” of EYC. A couple of times, some thoughtful members have taken me up on the challenge and say, “what do you mean by the future of EYC?” Specifically, what do you have in mind?
November? Still, a lot of stuff…
One would think that the coming of November, with its colder days, the onset of STANDARD TIME (yuk), the beginning of Christmas music in the stores (can you stand “Jingle Bells” for two months?) would mean that things are slowing down at “the best damn Yacht Club on the Chesapeake”. But nooooo…
To Be or Not To Be…. And other Odds and Ends
September 15, 2014: Some immediate housekeeping issues:
- First, we have the honor to host the J/80 World Championships beginning the weekend after next (Thursday, September 25, through the following weekend, wrapping up October 5). Many Marina tenants have moved their boats to make room for our competitors and the parking lot will be closed both of those weekends. Please look for precise times of the closure in next week’s Newsblast. The Clubhouse WILL BE OPEN… we’re just going to have some inconvenience on the parking end. There will be two handicapped parking spaces available even during weekend hours. Again, please look for next week’s Newsblast for precise information.
