What is the Latitude Adjustment Party?
The Latitude Adjustment Party is a public block party 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. It has a long and colorful history whose continued centerpiece is Wes Wilde's famous Rum Punch. The Tiki Barbarians, South Creek Boys and Eastport Shout will provide lively music that will keep Eastport a hoppin' throughout the evening. Advance tickets are $10; $15 at the door.
What can you expect at the Latitude Adjustment Party?
The Latitude Adjustment Party is Eastport Yacht Club's way to throw a great block party for the community and give everyone an opportunity to meet those who will begin racing from Annapolis to Bermuda the following day. Come early to meet these adventurous racers as their skippers may put a curfew on their crews so they are fresh for the big race. We also use this opportunity to recognize those chosen as the 2018 Outstanding Marine Wizards of our community.
