Take a Look at This!
This is a true story and hot off the boat. An EYC couple have spent the last 11 months sailing; recently they stopped by Outfitters and said they needed a new burgee. While they look tan and fit, the burgees on their boat show what some of the sailing conditions must have been like. . .
“The weather was very windy for much of the time, as you can see from the burgees. The top one - the Bahamas burgee - is half shredded. The Canadian one can be re-sewn. The Ocean Cruising Club burgee (blue and yellow) is pretty sturdy and in fine shape, maybe because owners of it cruise oceans for thousands of miles in stiff winds. And the Eastport Yacht Club burgee is ripped to shreds. A testament to the conditions we encountered on this trip!!”
Outfitters hastens to point out that being shredded does not happen easily to EYC burgees. Under normal conditions of use, the burgee will survive and fly proudly for years. This story demonstrates the determination, and sailing proficiency of two of our members.
And now on to June news. Outfitters will have new 100% cotton polo shirts and comfort color T-shirts arriving soon. Our baseball hat supply will once again represent the full rainbow of colors and we will have other, often requested for summer, hats to protect noses, ears, and even the back of necks. Finally, we have ordered some great water bottles to quench your thirst!
