Publicity – April 2017


If you haven’t been down to ECSC yet this season, you are in for a surprise. The pre-season work crews have been busy. Last weekend Mark Walker and his grounds crew led an exuberant crowd in our annual club opening and clean up party.  Dennis Robertson (our Dockside Harbormaster) led the charge to update and renew the dock boards on L or F or D Dock.  Which brings me to the interesting observation that we have many names for the same piece of dock????  (someone should submit a guest article on the history of all these names)  This dock work is an ongoing project, so anyone interested in helping and earning valuable work credits please contact Dennis Robertson or Kenny Chapman.  Back in our Junior sailing area a new Youth shed (Wayne’s World 2.0) has sprung from the beach. This area has covered space for education and training programs and an enclosed space that will be used for storage and  even has workout area. The Pressure Sprayer is on and the club is open and ready for business.

ECSC now has a new Twitter page – Check it out and follow us at @ECSailor

As for happenings in Publicity, Our new FOR SALE section has generated a fair amount of interest.  Check back often as I get regular requests to add items to the page.  ECSC will soon begin to list several items that the harbormaster has determined are abandoned property.

If you are looking for that special boat part or Marine Service here at the club, check out our MARINE SERVICES page.  While the club does not endorse these websites and businesses, many have been added after recommendations from fellow club members.

If you have something to sell, are looking for some special boat part, or have a suggestion for the marine services page, email me by CLICKING HERE and I will get the info up as soon as possible.

As Publicity Chair, I would also like to invite any ECSC club members to submit a guest article.  Have you attended a regatta that was incredible?, have you gone cruising in sunny Florida?, have you read a good book on sailing you want to share?, have you recently completed a long and painstaking boat rehab?…. If so,  write your thoughts down and submit them here and I will include them in a future telltales article.

Sail fast,

Rick Graef
