    Social – June 2023

    It is hard to believe that it is June already!

    I hope you have enjoyed our events thus far.  You may have noticed that we are trying to include some vegetarian options in the mix.

    Big thank you to David and Anne Marie Knapp for hosting Memorial Day.  The DJ has several people shaking their groove thing into the night.  The Orndorff’s hosted Father’s Day again and we enjoyed a Bloody Mary Bar along with some fabulous sides!  Tony Rice always does a great job on the grill!

    The club will provide the main course and beverages for social events.  We ask that attendees bring a dish to share in true pitch-in fashion.

    We are still looking for Host/Hostesses for Kid’s Day, Labor Day, and the Chili Cookoff.  Please reach out if you are interested in earning some work credits and helping with any of the social events.

    You may find all social and private events on the ECSC calendar located on the website.  Below is a quick snapshot of the season’s events.  Those in bold font require RSVP and Pre-payment.  More details to come closer to the events.

    Racing – June 2023

    Racers and Non-Racers

    ​The racing program is off and in full bloom.  The successful running of the Mayor’s Cup is the traditional marker each year that all the capacities of our program are up and running.  A big thanks to all our volunteers who have made this possible.  Congratulations to all those that won trophies and awards at the Mayor’s Cup this year.

    ​We have a full summer of upcoming ECSC and non-ECSC racing events this summer.  The Chasing Bubbles Event is coming up on June 17th and will offer various social and sailing events that all members are invited to attend even though the event is put on by the Chasing Bubbles Foundation and is a celebration of their mission and achievements.   Please check the ECSC website and Facebook page for details.  Then on July 15th is the ECSC Regatta followed by the ECSC Beach Party. In August we will have the Ladies Regatta and the Single-Handed Regatta.

    ​The new Primary Racing Officer race management program is going very well with great participation by all that are involved.  We have also had some super volunteers this year that are giving more than their share of volunteer hours to our racing efforts.  Many thanks to them.  The Sunday race committee effort is also drawing more attendance than last year, and we are hopeful this venue will continue to grow as more racers experience the value of this offering.

    ​Always looking for more non-racing volunteers to get a chance to participate in the race committee work on the water.  This is a very easy way for many to see racing firsthand without having to race your boat.  Come out and have some fun with us by volunteering by giving Nancy Goff or I a call.
