Dear Friends,

First and foremost, I hope this note finds you and your family’s in good health. In challenging times like this I find a strong need to connect with my friends and family.  So, I wanted to send you this Edison Boat Club update.

Our awesome Board has worked collaboratively to develop plans for our club this summer. Unfortunately, we will need to delay some of these Plans with the new directive from the Governor.  We had already moved to cancel the membership meeting for this Friday and will now cancel the Officers Tea.  We will work to adjust our plans accordingly.

We had already begun to process memberships, but unfortunately, we will be delaying this with the non-essential work order.

Please use our extra time to connect with our Edison Boat Club family and supporting each other in this difficult time.

Novice Sailing Class

We have been sailing and having a blast on the Detroit River since 1914. And guess what? We will be doing it again in 2020! 106 years young. They can take down a building but, you can't touch the Heart and Spirit.

We aren't all sailing Cat boats anymore. This year we will be offering opportunities to sail on 3 different boats, the Flying Scot daysailer, the Ultimate-20 sportboat. and the classic Crescent Sloop.

Our learn to sail classes begin Thursday 4/30/20 from 6pm until sunset. Classes will be held at the Grayhaven Mooring Facility located at the foot of Maheras-Gentry Park in Detroit.

This location offers easy access to sail on Lake St. Clair as well as the Detroit River. All teaching is a hands-on approach with a seasoned sail instructor in each boat. Primarily our goal is for you to operate a sailboat on you own. Providing a lifetime of recreation and enjoyment.

The total cost of the sailing class is $400. $100 for membership in the Edison Boat Club and $300 for our sailing program. Welcome and join us on the water! Space is limited. For info and to register, email us at edisonboatclub@gmail.com or call or text 734-358-3817. Let's have some fun!
