Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The annual Blessing of the Fleet in April, Founders’ Day in October, a gala Holiday Party in early December, and the now-signature New Year’s Day Pot Luck Extravaganza are some of our fun events for members, plus a variety of terrific (and delicious) events including a Bull & Oyster Roast, Seafood Bake, and much more. Of course, we have the best seats for the annual performances of the Navy’s Blue Angels during USNA Commissioning Week, and the July Fourth fireworks display.
EYC also has plenty of family-oriented events, including monthly Family Movie Nights, Junior Sailing events and cookouts, and many children’s events such as the spring Easter Egg Hunt, summer Ice Cream Social, and the Gingerbread House Building Party in December.

Around the House: June 2017
We had another busy month in May starting out with Cinco de Mayo followed by Mothers’ Day brunch and the weather was beautiful for the Blessing of the Fleet.
Everyone had a wonderful time at the Commodore’s Reception and there were a lot of beautiful hats worn by the ladies and the gentlemen were looking very handsome with their hats. There was more fun the next day with the Eastport movie and music from the Eastport Oyster Boys. The Blue Angels put on another fabulous show for us.
With the boating season upon us House Committee slows down to make room for the incredible number of on-water activities for our cruisers and racers.
However, we do start up with Music on the Deck series on Sundays This month on June 4th we will have the Matt McConville Trio and on June 18th we have Dan Haas.
The club is now serving lunch on Thursdays so come in and take a break and enjoy the view.
Fathers’ Day is Sunday the 18th so in addition to Music on the Deck we want to treat Dad too so we will have some wonderful dinner specials a bucket of beer specials and something very special for the Dads that come in.
Watch the Newsblast and the bulletin board for information about the America’s Cup Viewing Party to be held in June.
Reminder: the House Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday at 6:30 in the conference room. All are welcome to attend a meeting and see if you would like to join us on a regular basis.
Upcoming Events for July:
- July 4th Festivities
- July 16th Music on the Deck
Celebrate July Fourth at EYC
Can you believe it? July Fourth is on the horizon. This year’s EYC celebration should be really great, with live music from Major Company starting at 6 p.m., a sumptuous cookout buffet, and, of course, the best seats in town for the fireworks.
Guest Policy: As in the past, EYC members and their immediate families who live under the same roof are admitted free, but there will be a $10 charge for guests ($5 for children under 11). In addition to immediate families, member guests are restricted to 2 non-member adults and their related children. For clarification on the EYC Event Guest Policy, please see here. As always, no reservations required.
The club will be not be open for lunch on July 4th this year, and will open for the July 4th festivities beginning at 5 p.m. This year we will be offering two dining choices: a casual buffet upstairs in the dining room will feature the usual burgers and hotdogs, plus fried chicken, barbecued ribs, and much, much more, all for $19/person, $9/kids. On the waterfront lawn, it's backyard cookout-style, with hamburgers ($6), chicken sandwiches ($6) and hot dogs ($4), served with cole slaw ($1) and/or chips ($1), a la carte right off the grill.
The barbeque on the lawn and satellite bar service will be cash only, so be sure to bring your wallet (and avoid waiting in the crush at the bar for credit card use).
NOTE: In the event of inclement weather, the party will go on as scheduled, with dinner and music, regardless of the status of the fireworks display.Read more ...
