This Week at the EYC June 16-24

The EYC’s summer season kicks in to full gear this week.  In addition to the EYC’s ongoing activities of racing, swimming, bridge, ping-pong, four-square and hanging out on the pier, here’s what’s happening at the EYC.

The EYC has a full schedule of FYR BAL EVENTS on Saturday June 16.  The Fyr Bal Regatta begins at 10:00 AM, the informal membership meeting is at 5:00 PM, the Malcolm D. Vail Sr. Hall of Fame induction ceremony is at 6:00 PM, and the Fyr Bal Family Cookout (EYC will provide brats and chicken; bring a side or dessert to share and BYO beverages) begins around 6:15 PM, followed by bonfire and fireworks viewing.

LESSON SESSION B BEGINS Monday, June 18.  Both morning and afternoon lessons are offered during this two-week session.  The enrollment deadline is noon on Sunday, June 17.  For more information about EYC lessons, and to enroll, go to www.eyc.org/lessons.

The EYC’s RACE SERIES get going this week.  Flying Scots race Saturday morning and Monday evening, Optimists race Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning, and Tuesday and Thursday evening, and Lasers and Flying Juniors race Sunday afternoon and Friday evening.  For specific times see the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions at www.eyc.org/racing.  Remember, you must have your EYC skipper’s license to skipper an EYC-owned Scot, but you don’t need one to skipper an Optimist, FJ or Laser in a race, so come on down and race!
