2016 EYC Latitude Adjustment Party
The Latitude Adjustment Party is a public block party (with dancing!) thrown by Eastport Yacht Club to celebrate those who work in the Marine Trades, introduce and send off the Annapolis to Bermuda Ocean Race crews and name Outstanding Marine Wizards.
EYC designated the EYC Foundation as the 2016 beneficiary. Volunteers worked at the entrance gate, pour beer and wine, serve food and sell tickets.
The next "Latitude Adjustment Party" will be held in 2018!
