Another Flying Scot Donated to the EYC

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

A big thank-you to EYC members Gerry and Elfi Johnson, who donated their Flying Scot “Ameraust” with its gear, sails and trailer to the EYC!

Remember, your donation to the EYC is tax-deductible, and will be used to support the EYC’s charitable mission of sailing education and promotion of amateur sailing competition.  The EYC’s wish list includes:

*  Flying Scot, Optimist and Laser sailboats, and parts and sails for those sailboats.

*  Powerboats from 14 to 20 feet in length suitable for teaching lessons and running races.

*  Outboard motors, especially four-stroke outboard motors.

*  Boat lifts (Shore Station or similar).

*  Personal watercraft (Wave Runner or similar), to be used for teaching lessons.

*  Other items which may be useful to the EYC or which the EYC can sell to raise funds.

If you or someone you know has an item to donate, please contact Commodore Marsella Fults marsellafults@gmail.com

EYC Featured in Peninsula Pulse

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

The EYC was featured in an article in the Peninsula Pulse at http://www.ppulse.com/Articles-c-2010-09-16-95077.113117_Sailing_101.html

The author, Brittany Jordt, took a private lesson from EYC instructor Olivia Demarinis.  Brittany’s verdict?  “The view from the bay was breathtaking and the lesson informative and relaxed.”

Is it time for you to learn to sail?  It’s never too late.  The EYC will offer a full schedule of lessons in summer 2011 for both juniors and adults.
