July was another busy month at the club! Even with all of the social and racing events happening, our wonderful Grounds Committee still managed to have the ECSC drive patched and seal coated. The Grounds crew also cut back the encroaching foliage along our drive in and at the entrance at 46th Street. Hopefully these improvements will make it much easier to see traffic on 46th Street when exiting the club and give more room for cars passing each other on the club driveway. There is also an ongoing project at the lower shelter to build steps up to the shelter floor and create flower beds at the front. We hope to have another productive month working on the club grounds, and we sincerely appreciate all of our volunteers who are helping us in our endeavor to maintain and improve the club for the benefit of all our valued members!
ECSC Commodore 2018
Hello to all at the club. I hope you’re enjoying your summer on the lake. First a heads up to all at the docks. The water level has dropped a little bit in the last month so if you are in a shallow dock you may want to go check your Keel and make sure you’re not on the bottom.
Once again I’m asking anyone who is not using their dock for the season I still have a waiting list of new members wanting a dock.
Anyone that needs work credits can contact me we still have plenty of odd jobs around the club that need to get done.

The ECSC Junior Sailing Team has had another very busy month! July started off with the team going to Mentor Harbor, Ohio for Junior Olympics. Both days consisted of very light wind and they got two races in. Reagan Lessick was 9th overall, Grant Goff placed 31st, and Jack Hadlock placed 34th. There was a great turn out at this regatta!
