Welcome to the Eastport Yacht Club’s racing pages. Here you will find information on regattas hosted by EYC, links to useful weather sites, and more.

CBYRA and EYC club regattas may be accessed below. (Only those with red buttons are available at this time.)
CBYRA and/or US Sailing membership may be required to receive a discounted entry fee for some regattas.
It means big fun, that's what. Sailors, whether you cruise or race, sail one-design or PHRF, register to race in the annual Boatyard Bar & Grill Regatta to Benefit CRAB on Saturday, August 23.
This fun race is unique in several ways. First, it's a pursuit-start event, which means that everyone's handicap is essentially applied before the start. So the slowest boats start first, the fastest boats start last, and whoever crosses the finish line first, wins.
More importantly, it's a great way to support our friends at CRAB (Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating) and their mission to share the joys of sailing with physically and developmentally disabled individuals and their families, regardless of financial circumstances. The race also affords sailors a chance to compete in the specially equipped CRAB Freedom 20s, in their own division and against the rest of the fleet.
Racers can compete in spinnaker or non-spinnaker divisions, and even in a number of one-design subdivisions. North Sails will award trophies to participants in the one-design division with the largest number of entries; so far there are classes for Alerion 28s, Cal 25s, and J/70s; a Harbor 20 class has been added, and more can be accommodated if there is adequate interest.
Racing, around government marks on a pre-determined course, is followed by a great party at EYC with live music and food and drink provided by sponsors including the Boatyard Bar & Grill, Mount Gay Rum, and Heineken. Other sponsors include EYC and SpinSheet.
Don't want to race? Come to the party anyway! Tickets are $5 in advance, $10 at the gate.
Join the fun with this year's Solomons racers as they relive the race and receive trophies and congratulations. Yes, the traditional post-race Bloody Marys in the morning at Solomons was served up at a gathering at the Holiday Inn, but the awards party is still to come, taking place on the EYC grounds on Saturday, July 26, starting at 6 p.m.
Fun, food and drink will be featured, along with the raceQs tracks of your race and your competition's to go along with your hand gestures as you describe your track southward. Admission to the party is free, and a pasta buffet dinner and drink specials -- including a specially concocted Solomons Spinnaker adult beverage -- will be available for sale.
Wear your oldest and/or wildest classic Solomons tropical shirt -- there WILL be prizes!
Advance purchase of dinner tickets is recommended, as they are $12 in advance or $15 at the gate. Skippers can take advantage of group rates to treat the crew to dinner, with the purchase of 5 tickets for $50.
