It’s a busy weekend at the EYC!

Friday Night Laser and 420 Races Return

Join us this Friday afternoon for the kick-off to the 420 and Laser Race Series.  Boat draw at 5:00pm with the first race starting at 6:00pm.  Experienced racers, Eric and Jack will assist with pairing sailors and rigging 420s.  Parents are encouraged to watch the fun and setting sun.  Pack up your dinner and bring it to the club.  We’ll fire up the grills immediately after racing.  This is the perfect evening for racers to get to know each other and make plans for summer racing.

Pancake Breakfast Saturday 7:30-10:30!

Attention EYC members & friends: The EYC’s Pancake Breakfast is Saturday, June 16, 7:30-10:30. at the Ephraim Village Hall.  This is a fun and delicious way to kick off your Fyr Bal weekend and to catch up with summer friends.  Breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee for just $10 ($5 juniors aged 10 and under).  All proceeds benefit the EYC!

FYR Bal Cookout – Saturday, June 16, 6:00 pm

Once again the Latreille’s and the O’Rourke’s host this fun evening. Join other EYC families for an alfresco dinner on the dock. Burgers, brats and hot dogs will be provided. Please bring a side dish to share with many and your own beverages. Stay to watch the Ephraim fires burn and the fabulous fireworks light up the sky! The EYC dock is the place to be!

Renew During the Membership Grace Period

Our annual membership dues deadline is May 31st.  If this payment has slipped off your radar, you are in luck.  The EYC by-laws state that June is the “grace period” in which non-renewed members can submit dues payments without additional costs.  Please call membership volunteer, Jodi (920) 421-1652  for assistance with this process.

Directories: Come and get ’em!

Directories will be available Saturday 9-11, Saturday at the cookout, and at the Opening Social on June 23.

Volunteer at the Opening Social June 23rd.

The Opening Social is on Saturday, June 23rd and it’s an awesome way to start the summer.  A few volunteer spots still remain and helping out is the best way to meet and make new friends at EYC!  Click on the link to get started.
Can’t help out at the Opening Social?  Don’t despair (really, don’t!) as there are plenty of other EYC events where your help is greatly appreciated.  Sign up here! 

Finally, a heartfelt THANKS to all EYC members and merchants who supported the Aaron R. Moore Scholarship Fundraiser!

Bernard Hayman, the editor of Yachtingworld Magazine, once said; “A man can pretend to be a lot of things in this world; but he can only pretend to be a sailor for as long as it takes to clear the harbor mouth!”   

That is the reality and challenge by which sailors live.  That challenge is repeated, and truth is verified every day at EYC by young and old and by family and friends as it has been for more than 112 years.  The wind, waves and water confirm this every week end with the regattas. Every day throughout this coming season more young sailors will learn and test their skills, young men and women who will grow up understanding reality, without pretense.  Young men and women who will have the self-confidence and the skills to clear the harbor in all endeavors of life.

Sailing is truly a metaphor for life lessons and life skills.  The goal of The EYC – Aaron R. Moore Sailing Scholarship is to continue this legacy by providing sailing lesson scholarships, to the youth of Door County who otherwise could not afford the opportunity.  To date the EYC – ARM fund has provided just under 200 scholarship sessions to the youth of Door County.  That is a direct result of the help of  the EYC supporters who contribute or attend, as well as the merchants, artists, restaurateurs and donors that offer their charitable donations. Our sincere thanks to our wonderful EYC supporters as well as the following merchants for the following for their generous support:
