This weekend at the EYC

Men’s Fellowship Night.  On the evening of Friday, July 23, EYC men (age 21 and older) are invited to gather on the EYC pier for a casual get-together.  Plan to arrive around 7 PM to watch the end of the FJ and Laser races.  We will pre-heat the grills and, as soon as the racers and other spectators are gone, we will barbecue and socialize.  BYO steaks or other items for the grill, adult beverages, and cigars, if you choose.  Although the EYC prohibits smoking anywhere on its grounds or in its clubhouse, at this event only, outdoor cigar smoking will be allowed.   Smokers are reminded to wait until all juniors and women have left the pier before smoking, respect non-smokers, and properly dispose of ashes and butts.

Flying Scot Races will be held as usual on the morning of Saturday, July 24.  Draw for use of EYC-owned boats 9:15 AM; skippers meeting 9:30 AM; first race 10:00 AM.  If you plan to race in the Ephraim Regatta, you are running out of opportunities to practice, so get out there and race!
