Furthering the enjoyment of boating!

On the Water

EYC Racing and Cruising

The EYC Race Committee (RC) provides availability to fun, social, and prestigious events. These range from our own summer season Friday Night ‘Beer Can’ Series, the biennial Bermuda Ocean Race (BOR), the Solomons Island Race (an overnight race to a terrific party at the finish), and the Santa Maria Cup International Women’s Invitational Match Racing Championship, to the annual Leukemia Cup and several other charity regattas combining fun and fund raising. We support Junior Sailing with a strong learn-to-sail program and host many events with other local clubs. Individuals who don’t own a boat, yet want to get out on the water, may participate in many ways. There is always a need for crew on the RC boats. Out on the water you can learn about sailboat racing from all angles. If you want to get out and race, but have never tried, our Friday Night Racing Series is your starting ticket.

Our Cruise Committee activities start in early spring with the Blessing of the Fleet and move into a variety of fun cruises: cocktails & munchies, wine tasting, baseball games, concerts, and (best of all) gunk-holing on a warm summer night with a full moon and good friends. One of the season’s highs is the traditional Gourmet Cruise. The cruisers are very active and are always looking for new places to go and things to do, and very often find them. When the wind blows chill on the Bay, activities move into the Clubhouse for seminars on maritime skills, convivial evenings of darts, trivia, or other games, and parties and pot-luck dinners with friends.

Did we mention the younger set? In addition to our active Junior sailing program, we also have monthly Family Movie Nights with a great kid-vid feature and special supper menu, plus the annual Easter Egg Hunt, a summer Ice Cream Social, fall Scarecrow-Building Party, and a holiday Gingerbread House Decorating Party, all geared to kids and grandkids.
