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.
