Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The annual Blessing of the Fleet in May, Founders’ Day in November, 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, Crab Feast, and 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.Want to get in on the ground floor for the fun? Join House Committee! Meetings are held first Wednesdays of the month, 6:30 p.m. Or contact Co-Chairs Carey Kirk and Mark Jones. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
Food and (Holy) Water
Sunday, May 10, is Mother's Day and the Blessing of the Fleet. Start off with a wonderful brunch followed by the Blessing of the Fleet, including boats in the yard and marina as well as any other member boats that tie up for the occasion.
Mother's Day Brunch begins at 9 a.m. this year and features some great springtime items in addition to the usual favorites. We can guarantee you'll want to make reservations so you won't miss this great event. Cost is $24.95/person for adults, $12.95/children. NEW: Early Bird pricing for those in the first seating is just $18.95.
Make reservations through the office only. Call 410-267-9549.
We are fortunate to have the Reverend Jeff Paulson to officiate and bagpiper Randy Welch returning this year for the ceremony!
Those who have boats on premises, please try to "dress" them or display your burgee proudly. The Blessing begins at 1:30 p.m.
If you can’t bring your boat to the club for the event, never fear – once again there will be vials of blessed water to take away and share with your vessel wherever she lies.
