A30 Black Tie Party


Memorial Day weekend formerly featured the Black Tie Party. This was a semi-formal affair; black tie was specified, but the rest of the dress was optional. Sometimes there were enough people in the cockpit to flood it through the scuppers. Under the influence of rum punch, the Lazarette Quartet would sometimes give an impromtu concert. Perhaps it's better that no sound recordings exist of this event.

The Black Tie Party has been superceded in recent years by the Costume Ball.

It should be noted that these events are part of a race weekend, the Miles River Race. How many other classes carry formal wear or costumes on their racing boats?
