Introducing: EYC BoomerangTwinBoomerangs

As you have undoubtedly heard by now, the EYC Race Committee has retired the venerable Annapolis to Solomons Island overnight race. So that we can still enjoy the overnight splendor of the Chesapeake Bay, we created a new overnight race, the EYC Boomerang Race.

Why Boomerang you say?  Well, if properly thrown, boomerangs go out and come back, and that’s what this race is all about. Beginning off G’9’ the evening of Saturday, July 9, crews will sail one of three courses overnight, and guess what… return to G’9’ to finish and then head to EYC for the Boomerang party.

Anchor your boat off of EYC, or contact Snag-A-Slip, our marina and slip sponsor, and hail the Watermark water taxi which will be providing service starting at 6 am, just for us.

Once on land, the morning will start with breakfast sandwiches, fruit, muffins and coffee from our sponsor Grumps. Yum! But that's not all. Our bartenders will be mixing up Bloody Marys with George’s Bloody Mary mix, also a sponsor for our race. We’ll also offer Screwdrivers and Foster beer, Mate.

In between breakfast and lunch, the family-friendly activities begin: face painting, balloon making, corn hole competition, and other fun. Live music will be a part of our big day and at noon, our lunch sponsor, Annapolis Smokehouse and Tavern will be serving a sumptuous spread to our sailors and their families. Around 1400 we will start the EYC Boomerang awards presentation and celebrate the fun and competition of Corinthian sailing, and then the music plays on until 1600. 

Entries are coming in already in classes including PHRF A through C and Nonspinnaker, Multihull A and B, CHESS, CRCA Cruiser and Performance Cruiser, and Alberg 30, J/30, J/35, and J/105. The registration deadline is Thursday, July 7 (or Saturday, July 2, if you want to avoid the dreaded late fee).

Stepping up to support this new event are a host of terrific sponsors, including Annapolis Smokehouse & Tavern (Sunday lunch), Grump's Cafe (Sunday breakfast), Weather Routing Inc., Charlie Buckley's Mr. Waterfront Team, Snag-A-Slip, Ruff Draft Solutions, Watermark Cruises, Comfortable Creatures Pet Sitting, George's Mixes, and more.

Since this event also features a significant shoreside component (the aforementioned "world famous party"), non-racing volunteers are needed to help out. Sign up today!
