Commodore’s Corner

Dear members,
I am sure we are all encouraged to be leaving 2023 in our wake. It was a
challenging but good year for all of us. The Board and I are looking forward to the club activities as soon as practical and have begun planning for 2024. Several activities and the Flying Scot Sailing Classes will again be held at the Grayhaven State Marina.
Sadly, the year began with the passing of our newly elected Commodore, R. E.
Lee Greening III on January 15. His wife, Lady Pamela and son, Tim passed away
on December 28. This was due to a tragic auto accident in Texas.
You and the rest of our EBC family are our greatest asset. I am asking you to
contribute your ideas, time and heart to bring us into our 110th year. There are
numerous ways you can help your club. You can help us with the Sailing Program as a Skipper or just come on down on Thursdays and cheer everyone on. Please jump in and lend a hand. Join in on the fun.
Please reach out to me or any of our Board members at edisonboatclub@gmail.com.
Your membership renews will be going out soon. We are sending them out a
month later to get them away from your holiday festivities.
Your 2024 EBC Commodore Kevin Webb


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 2023! 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 4/18/2024 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!
