ECSC Ladies’ Day Sail 2016 – by Kelli Morehead

The ECSC Ladies’ Day Sail was held Saturday, August 13, 2016 at the club’s upper pavilion shelter. The event was hosted by Kelli Morehead, along with co-hosts Denise Fox, Sheela Krout, and Nancy Goff. Three “Fantastic First Mate” helpers included Mark Walker, Terry Holland, and Chuck Goff. There were 17 ladies in attendance for the event, including Lesley Baker, Judie Breitzke, Marilyn Cloutier, Jackie Deppe, Jenipher Gee, Nancy Goff, Vickie Greenough, Sheela Krout, Sarah McQueen, Christy Merriman, Kelli Morehead, Kathy Newgent, Jane Schmidt, Nan Schulze, Edna Sprowl, Sherry Weir, and Burnie Wilkins.

Ladies were treated to a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-themed event featuring décor done up in the classic Tiffany blue and white, along with black and silver accents. Silver beads and crystal and aqua gems scattered on the tables completed an elegant look. Tiffany-blue boxes filled with Lindt truffles doubled as place cards. Black velvet holders adorned with pearl strands graced the buffet tables. A brunch-style meal featured a tasty breakfast casserole, fruit compote, a build-your-own yogurt parfait station, and pastries including mini muffins, scones, and fruit danishes. The beverage station featured coffee/decaf, orange juice, and bottled water featuring a fun bottle wrap with the iconic Audrey Hepburn image and a “Drink Up Darling!” message. Brunch was enjoyed by everyone!

As the weather was not cooperative for the ladies to enjoy a nice sail, all attendees were treated to three “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-themed games. Marilyn Cloutier won the movie trivia game, Lesley Baker aced the movie word search, and Edna Sprowl came in first in the “What’s in Your Little Black Purse?” game with 19 items! Way to go, ladies!

Everyone had fun seeing old friends, welcoming new friends, and enjoying a lovely time of fellowship, food, and festivity. All attendees and “First Mate” helpers received nautical swag bags filled with surprises to enjoy upon departure. All in all, it was a delightful event and very well attended!
