Cruising Fleet

IMG 0202Thank you for visiting the web page of the Erie Yacht Club Cruising Fleet. If you are a current member welcome back and please check out our planned boating and social activities. If you are not a member of the Cruising Fleet, let us tell you about ourselves to see if you might be interested in joining us.

Organized in the winter of 2016, we are a friendly group of individuals that enjoy being on the water for a weekend or longer cruise, or a social get together on the shore. Our goal is to provide a positive experience of camaraderie among new and seasoned members in social and cruising activities. Although many members have a boat, power or sail, it is not a perquisite to be a member of the cruising fleet. Our cruises will consist of both local and long distance rendezvous that will include; picnics, raft-ups, day trips and weekend trips. We may plan a theme cruise, a flotilla to local restaurants for dinner, a raft up at 8 Great Tuesdays or Beach 10 or 11. Participation in other Club events such as the Bay Swim, Frolic on the Bay and the Charity Regatta are also planned.

All are invited to join the fun. If you have not cruised before, this group is for you. You will be able to learn from experienced cruisers and learn what’s important to plan for a safe trip for you and your crew. We are well on our way to a fun and exciting boating summer!

The Erie Yacht Club Bridge and Board generously underwrites the activities of the EYC Cruising Fleet, in addition, we collect an annual Participation Fee of $50 for first year Cruisers and $35 for renewals. Checks made out to “EYC CRUISING FLEET” (not EYC) can be dropped at the EYC Club Office, Attention Dave Wagner, with a note stating that it is for EYC Cruising Fleet. Leave your name, phone and email, too so we can add you to our notices of activities. Any EYC member can attend EYC Cruising Fleet events but the Fee must be current in order to travel with the Fleet. The Fleet uses these funds to provide complimentary appetizers and snacks at various parties and Fleet gatherings and always hosts a Fleet sponsored Happy Hour upon arrival at a cruising destination. Paid members always receive a discount on costs of various Cruiser events such as picnics and parties.
