levels hindered Dave Allely and the Ground and Waterfront committee in dock
installation, but with great determination and hard work our docks are in at
the Club. We are very thankful for the
work our volunteers have done for our enjoyment and for our swimming and
sailing camp students. The club has been
cleaned and ready for use. Their work
also contributed to the first International C-Scow regatta hosted by EYC last
weekend. We had 10 C-Scows that raced of
which 5 traveled from the United States.
It was a very successful regatta.
The weather and wind was perfect and allowed us to have 5 races in the
bay and 2 on the lake. Congratulations
to Matt Poile and the C-Scow regatta committee on a job well done, we wish them
the best as they plan for the 2nd annual next year.
Last year we
successfully revamped and updated our sailing instructor fleet. This work permitted our instructors and
students to learn and improve their skill in the appropriate craft. One benefit to this was that our Saturday
junior races successfully had three to four fleets racing, which allowed us award
more of family trophies during our closing banquet. Please offer Jessica Mallory-Dillion any
assistance as she plans the junior race program.
We are very
