The annual sock burning began in the Spring of 1978, when, after a snowy winter, boatbuilder Bob Turner bid his oppressive sock-wearing days farewell for the summer by throwing them into a campfire. ...

Fast-forward to 2022, where the sock-burning represents a time to clear out the yacht club cobwebs and embrace spring. (Also, because it is just plain FUN!!)
