Commodore Spring Update 2019

Hi everyone, 2019 season fast approaches!!!

As we prepare for our season to get underway, I’d like to share some updates that are currently being completed to the EYC Club during the past months.   We have the great fortune of very capable volunteers maintaining the club and property.  If you haven’t had a chance to see the new bright blue metal roof you will be impressed.  It is sure to last many years as our members provided stern supervision of the construction.  Another property improvement is occurring on the bayside to control erosion and provide a safer launch ramp for our junior sailing members and campers.

We would like to offer our thanks to Brad Hall at B&C Renovations for strapping and installing the new Bright Blue Steel Roof.   Mark Phillips at Phillips Skid Steer Services will be installing the Cable Concrete Erosion Control System, we thank him as well.

Dependent on water levels the grounds and waterfront committee plans on installing docks Saturday, June 15th or if the weather isn’t suitable, Sunday June 16th.  Volunteers are appreciated.

We have a very exciting announcement for our members and racers; our club will be hosting our first International C-Scow Regatta.  The regatta will occur on the 22nd, 23rd, and the 24th of June.   A detailed schedule will be posted for those interested.

The Junior program committee is pleased to offer 8 weeks of excellent summer sailing and swimming programs for our membership and community.  Registration is now open on Checklick ESS.  Checklick can be accessed by the following link, https://erieauyc.checklick.com/ .

Applications are being accepted for this year’s ESS summer staff.  Job postings can be viewed on EYC web site.  Please forward resumes addressed to the Junior Sailing Committee at sailing@erieauyachtclub.com .

From the Office of The Commodore, it brings great sadness to announce the passing of a former Commodore of the EYC during the off season. Graham Dutton (EYC Commodore 1979), the Dutton Family has a longstanding relationship with Erieau and the EYC, and developed many friendships along the way.  We send our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

We look forward to a healthy, fun, safe and memorable 2019 summer in Erieau.

Jeremy Chesterfield “Jake”, Commodore, Erieau Yacht Club
