Year End Reflection
As the year comes to an end, we contemplate on how the EYC enriches our lives. For some of us, it is the robust sailing lesson program, for others the races and regattas and for many, it is the social aspect of lifelong friendships made at the club. One thing is for certain, we all hold EYC near and dear to our hearts. Now is a great time to give back to the club that means so much to us!

EYC Staff Opportunities
The Principal Race Officer
The Principal Race Officer (PRO) is a responsible individual with strong leadership and communication skills who is responsible for club race management. PRO is one of three EYC Staff leadership positions. The PRO’s primary responsibility is to train the EYC staff in race management and to ensure that club races are planned and executed properly. The PRO also serves as the key staff resource for the Race and Regatta Chair, is responsible for maintaining the inventory and care of the club’s race equipment, monitors race management by collecting feedback from other staff members and race participants, and ensures that racing results have been recorded properly in scoring software. The PRO should demonstrate powerboat handling proficiency and should possess small sailboat racing knowledge and experience. The ideal candidate should possess a good working knowledge of the 2021-2024 Racing Rules of Sailing, including protest procedures. An undeniable enthusiasm for sailboat racing is desired.
