No, Spring Cotillion is NOT just a dance! It is a public block party (with dancing!) thrown by Eastport Yacht Club in even years to celebrate those who work in the Marine Trades, introduce and send off the Bermuda Ocean Race crews and name Outstanding Marine Wizards. It has a long and colorful history whose continued centerpiece is Wes Wilde's famous Cotillion Punch.
EYC will name its 2012 Outstanding Marine Wizards nominated by the public and selected by a very special panel of judges who be introduced after the selection is complete. Bermuda Ocean Race crews will be introduced and we will see which skippers put a curfew on their crews with the first gun scheduled for Friday at 1:30 PM.
Michael Baker and the Blue Smoke Band will be playing original high energy blues, sure to get everyone dancing! Bermuda Ocean Race gear will be for sale and information about the EYC Foundation's MAST (MArine Skills Training) initiative will be available. Lots of Gosling rum drinks, beer, wine and soft drinks will be for sale along with the secret recipe Cotillion Punch. As always the EYC Volunteer Grillers will be cooking up a storm of reasonably priced fare.
