Fyr Bal Regatta (Take 2) is on Saturday!

Woohoo! Junior Activity at Red Putter, Wed. June 27, 6-8pm

Got a “junior”? Then you need to know about Wednesday night Junior Activities! Kids of all ages (7 and up) can view the week’s info and sign up on a poster in the EYC. For this week, drop-off and pick-up are at the Red Putter promptly 6-8pm.  We’re always looking for parent volunteers (or teens needing service hours!). Please contact Sibylle Tasker at STasker@eyc.org to help. Trust me, you don’t want junior to miss out on the fun!

More Sailing Classes Have Been Added!  Sign up ASAP, Lessons Are Filling!

We’re updating the offerings now (site will be fully updated this weekend) and adding spots to existing sessions, another Racing class in Session D, and an afternoon Beginner class in Session E.  All Powerboat Skills classes are full except for Session D.  If you ran into a closed class earlier, check back on the website as we added capacity in some areas.  Feel free to contact education@eyc.org with any questions about lessons or camps.

Early bird pricing for Session C ends Friday, June 22 at 2:00 pm.  After that, you can still register, but it will set you back an additional $25/class.

Lunch anyone? Many of our dedicated staff will be teaching both in the mornings and afternoons this summer.  In the past, some generous volunteers have brought down a much appreciated lunch for the staff.  If you would like to do this, please contact Director Matt Andersen to coordinate on a date.  Thank you!

Wanna Race?  

420s and Lasers are on Fridays 6 pm, and Sundays at 1 pm.  Optis start next week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 pm (boat draw at 5).  Flying Scots are on Saturday mornings at 10 am with a pre-race tip session at 9. Weekly racing is free for members (that includes anyone enrolled in lessons).
