Commodore’s Message: 

The beginning of boating season is just around the corner, we have already had our first cruise of the season to the beautiful Everett Marina where we had 10 boats cruise over for our Shakedown Cruise / General Meeting!  It was a great event full of fun and fellowship, hosted by the ERYC Officers and we even picked up 3 new memberships!  Please join me in welcoming Jim Downar & Heather Brignull, Josh Hoffman, Troy & Kati Lucas and Brian & Natalie Elert to the ERYC family!

I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our new ERYC Officers.  This group of officers has really hit the ground running and I am looking forward to serving with them for the next 2 years and beyond as they bring new enthusiasm and passion to the ERYC!


ERYC Officers:
Commodore – Ron Jenkins
Vice Commodore - Kevin McAfee (not pictured)
Secretary – Christy Tobin-Presser
Treasurer – Dawn Hernandez

ERYC is Covered!

We can all breathe a sigh of relief that Emerald Rose Yacht Club has obtained liability and directors and officers coverage insurance policies from Liberty Mutual and USLI, respectively.  While we hope that they never happen, the Club is now covered in the event of any accidents that occur during our events and our officers can confidently serve the Club to their fullest capacity.  Thank you to Dean Lentgis of Insurance Brokers Group for assessing our needs and sourcing our policies.
