Things are happening at EYC. First, our brilliant Commodore, Ted Walkup, figured out a pretty cheap way to reuse those broken concrete dock sections without sending them to the landfill. The Port Commission had spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to dispose of them and it was complicated and looking very expensive (see this month's Commodore's Corner for details on Ted's solution).
EYC had its annual Compliance Inspection from the Corps of Engineers. This always makes the staff nervous but we appreciate their input, especially on safety and environmental issues.
EYC now owns two blue plastic kayaks that are on the new kayak rack. Please use them. First come, first served. Bring your own PFD and sunscreen. And maybe a change of clothes. There is no age limit but kids need to be supervised.
We are hoping to have ice cream vending available by Sail School. Which reminds me, we still have room for students at Sail School. So please enroll yourself or someone important to you. It is lots of fun.
EYC just hosted two regattas—Memorial Day and the Living on the Edge Multihull Regatta. Much thanks to Dean Mitchell, Roeland Kapsenberg, and Rich Johnson and all their helpers for putting these on. And the Emerald Regatta is fast approaching. This will be based at EYC this year for soon-to-be-resolved legal reasons.
The Independence Day Celebration will be more fun than ever and we will be doing it on July 4th this year. I know, I know, but I always get asked when it is. Much thanks to Stephanie Lunceford for chairing the event and to Lane County and Tri Pass Ski Club for helping out with the cost of the fireworks.
See you on the water!
