EYC hosts regatta-related fund raising parties in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating and the EYC Foundation. In addition, EYC produces one of Annapolis' most beloved traditions, going back more than 30 years: the annual Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade the second Saturday of December, when Annapolis Harbor is illuminated with dozens of boats sporting spectacular holiday displays of lights.
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. Our busy House Committee also schedules a variety of terrific (and delicious) events including a Bull & Oyster Roast, Seafood Bake, and much more.
With our prime location on the banks of the Severn River, EYC's deck and yard are the best places to watch 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.
