It’s a busy high summer week here at the EYC.  In addition to the regularly scheduled sailing and socializing, and the unscheduled sailing and socializing, here’s what’s happening:

EYC members with boats of all sizes and types are invited to RAFT UP AND PICNIC to watch the fireworks at Fish Creek on Saturday, July 5. We will meet beginning around 6:00 P.M.  BYO food, beverages, lots of fenders, and all your Coast Guard-required gear.  Look for the Peterson’s Charrette, a white sailboat displaying the EYC burgee.  The Petersons have a grill for shared use, and condiments, spices and cooking utensils.  The Petersons also have some space on their boat for those who don’t have a boat.
