Annual Sock Burning – March 17th

Come down to the club Friday, March 17th to join us for our Annual Sock Burning.

This unique tradition of East Coast Yacht Club began at the Eastport Yacht Club in Annapolis.  It’s a fun gathering of yacht club members prior to the Spring Equinox.

“The Gatling Pointe Yacht Clubbers got an odd tradition 
When the sun swings to its Equinoxical position, 
They build a little fire down along the docks, 
They doff their shoes and they burn their winter socks. “
Gather your old winter socks and join us for this fun, little ritual as we hope for warmer weather and the beginning of the boating season.  We will bring out the fire pit and start the annual reading of the “Ode to Sock Burning” and our toast to the boating season about 7:45 pm.
All are welcome to join us!
