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.
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 Theresa Somes and John Ryder. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
EYC will hold the annual Burning of the Socks on Monday, March 20, 2016. At 0628± (Local MRE Time) that morning, the Sun will cross the equator heading North and the Spring Equinox will arrive in the Maritime Republic!
Rain or shine, the Annual Eastportorican Burning of the Socks will be held at Eastport Yacht Club. Members and guests are invited to come to burn their socks, hear the history of the event, and partake in the consumption of Cold Beer and Fresh Oysters.
The festivities begin on Monday, March 20, at 1600 hours in the yard. EYC Shuckmeisters will be working their artistry.
Come down, enjoy a cold beverage and an oyster or six, and burn your winter socks in the bonfire. Bring a new pair to donate to the Lighthouse Shelter for those in need. Outfitters will be open, too, with the limited edition Burning of the Socks T-shirts! Don't miss it.
New to sock burning? This sacred ritual, which was entrusted to EYC by its founder, Bob Turner, has deep roots and has been featured in news stories across the nation, including in the New York Times and the Christian Science Monitor.
