“Burning of the Socks on the Equinox” 

&

Haiku Contest

Initiated in 2009, the annual Burning of the Socks is the first social event of the season. Spring is celebrated on the first Saturday on or after the Spring Equinox.  The Sock Burning is an informal get together on the first day of Spring consisting of a bonfire, beer or other beverage, and everyone brings their “winter” socks to burn.

A Haiku Contest has added to the enthusiasm, with contestants competing for "Egg of Wisdom” Award for the best sailing/spring/water themed Haiku…most made up on the spot.
