Opening Day at any yacht club is a special day that helps mark the beginning of the boating season, with an eye to warmer sunnier weather. Everyone looks forward to days on or around the water with friends.
Opening Day at Edgewood Yacht Club this year was a special one, marking just the second year that we are in the new Clubhouse building, and a new enhanced program and facility that will up the bar for member experience.
We again marked the day with our guests the Pawtuxet Rangers who are a wonderful local addition to our ceremonies. We love having them at our functions.
We have announced a partnership with the Culinary Program at Cranston Area Career and Technical Center, to provide food services this year at EYC. The partnership will also offer the opportunity for local students to learn and perfect their craft at EYC events. This reinvestment in the local community and our youth makes this partnership extra special.
The Club also welcomes a new manager of operations who has helped to improve overall operational capacity, while also getting the club in top shape for opening day.
