Raise the Flags and Burn Your Socks! @ KYC Clubhouse

Raise the Flags and Burn Your Socks! @ KYC Clubhouse | Bourne | Massachusetts | United States

Them Red Brook boys ‘got an odd tradition

When the sun starts gettin’ to a summer-like position,

They build a little fire down along the docks,

They doff their shoes and they burn their winter socks.

 

Yes, they burn their socks at the marina docks;

You might think that’s peculiar, but I think it’s not,

See, they’re the same socks they put on last fall,

And they never took ’em off to wash ’em, not at all . . .

 

So they burn their socks at the marina docks

In a little ol’ fire burning nice and hot.

Some think incineration is the only solution,

‘Cause washin’ ’em contributes to Red Brook’s pollution.

 

Through the spring and the summer and into the fall,

They go around not wearin’ any socks at all,

Just stinky bare feet stuck in old deck shoes,

Whether out on the water or sippin’ on a brew.

 

So if you sail into the Harbor on the 29th of May,

And it smells like Limburger sautéed with old hay,

You’ll know you’re downwind of the Kingman docks

Where they’re celebrating summer by burning their socks. 

 

We’ll raise the flags and sing the National Anthem at 5:00. Sock burning thereafter. The first 25 people to burn a pair of their winter socks will receive a free hat (one per family)

Early Season Cruise to Nantucket

Cruising is so much more fun as a group!

Our first KYC Kruise of the season will be a two-night trip to Nantucket over the weekend of June 10th.  We will be traveling to the Nantucket Boat Basin, taking advantage of their special early-season discounted rate of only $2.50/foot (75% off their normal rate).  Scheduled activities include a cocktail reception on Friday night at the “famed” Waterfront Slip 14 and a Saturday afternoon tour of the Cisco Brewery.

There is still time to join the 8 Kingman boats that are booked for the Kruise. You can make reservations on Dockwa.

Please reach out to your Rear Commodore (Jerry Murphy) at rear-commodore@kyc.us with any questions and/or to let us know once you’ve made your reservation.
