An Open Thank-You from Race Committee
The six-week span from mid-August through late-September has been an exceptionally busy time for Race Committee. Our calendar included four major events – CRAB, ALDR, I-505 NAs, and Hospice Cup, and each was immensely successful by any measure applied. After looking back at all of this, I would like to say “thank you” to the entrants, the Race, Marina, and Special Events Committees volunteers, and to the EYC membership.
Each of these events had large turnouts – 92 for CRAB, 107 for ALDR, 33 for the I-505s, and 85 for Hospice. The racers are the reason we schedule and host the events, and their continued support of our activities makes all that we do possible. I understand that schedules are very hectic in today’s world, and people are much more selective about which events to enter. It is both humbling and gratifying to see how many people have entered these events.
Scheduling an event is one thing, bringing it to life is quite another. From my personal experience, EYC has an abundance of eager volunteers. On the water, we have highly skilled and enthusiastic race committee personnel. Shoreside, the Marina Committee has stepped in to help us host out-of-town boats and maximize all available space. And, I cannot forget to mention that the amazing parties thrown by the Special Events Committee are quickly becoming legend.
Finally, I’d like to thank the EYC membership for their support of our activities. These high-profile events bring great exposure to our Club, albeit at the price of some inconvenience. The bars become a little more crowded, dinner service may be interrupted, and parking in our corner of Eastport is a little more difficult. Thank you for your patience as we bring these events to the sailing community. While the Race Committee receives the thanks from the racers, it is the entire Club that has earned the praise.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
