Happy 2018 from Outfitters!
Start the new year with style -- take a look at these down vests for both men and women. They are made by Lands’ End and are available in wonderful colors. The men’s vests have great patch pockets, sturdy snaps and contrast linings. The women’s vests have chevron design padding (very flattering) and side pockets which reduce bulk.
Always in style are the much loved and now back in stock denim shirts. These are true workhorses and can be worn for any occasion that is Eastport Formal. If your current one is a little threadbare, come get a new replacement while Outfitters has a wide choice of sizes.
Also to help the year to start well, Outfitters wants to ask you to begin taking and saving those fabulous seasonal photos for our 2018 Notecards and 2019 Calendar Photo Contest. The Photography Contest was very successful in 2017 and gave our members the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in taking great pictures. Remember that we will need larger files for high-resolution printing, no smaller than 1MBs.

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!
