FBYC Summer One-Day Laser Regatta This Sunday
Posted by Michael Toms on Tuesday July 22, 2014 @01:09PM

The Laser Fleet at Fishing Bay welcomes you to come join us this Sunday, July 27th, for our club one-day Summer race. The weather looks perfect for a Summer day of Laser Sailing - 90 and mostly sunny, wind from the SW at 8-10. Water temps are a pleasant 76 degrees and the nettles are few, so it should be an ideal day to be on the water. We will have a mix of skilled and veteran sailors out there, so no matter what your skill level, we look forward to seeing you there. Of course, the pool is open, if you want to bring the family. We also have plenty of other kid-friendly entertainment options. And we can set up babysitting services, if that is the key to getting you on the water on Sunday.
Registration is free and is here
Or you can go directly to our webpage, and the registration link is in the events list on the left-hand side.
Registration starts at 9, Skipper's meeting is at 10, 1st gun at 11:00. After racing, there is a social and trophy presentation. Please do register online, so we can get the right number of cold beverages for everyone.

Here's a quick preview video of the sailing done by our Juniors thus far this summer

Summer Sea Breeze 1 Results
Posted by Jon Deutsch on Wednesday July 9, 2014 @12:56PM

Once Hurricane Aurthur blew through it was smooth sailing for the Flying Scots and Front Runners at the first One Design Summer Sea Breeze regatta on Saturday.  What was clouds with winds in the 30's just a day before gave way to mostly sunny skies and 8-10 knot winds for 4 races run by PRO Mike Dale and his race committee.  Thanks to Veronica Hinckle for some pictures.


FBYC Junior Race Teams Take to the Road!
Posted by Meg Rock on Tuesday July 8, 2014 @01:15AM

Your Junior Race Teams have not been idle since the end of Junior Week.  Beginning  the day after its conclusion, the teams competed at 6 different regattas at 6 different clubs on the Bay in a total of 12 days!  We have a record 45 kids total-12 on the Opti Development Team, 12 on the Laser Race Team, and 21 on the Opti Race Team!  
After the Commonwealth, the Opti Development Team stayed home to practice, while the Opti Race Team and Laser Race Team hit the road.  First up after the Commonwealth on June 21-22 was the Rock Hall Yacht Club Annual Junior Regatta in Rock Hall, Maryland; followed by the Tred Avon Yacht Club Annual Junior Regatta in Oxford, Maryland; the Maryland State Championships at West River Sailing Club in Galesville, Maryland; Annapolis Yacht Club Junior Regatta in Annapolis, and finally, the Sandy MacVickar Memorial Annual Regatta hosted by the Severn Sailing Association in Annapolis on July 2.  
We averaged 30 juniors at each away regatta, which meant 5 transport trailers moving the Optis and Lasers to each club and event, 3 coach boats, and 6 different hotels for an average of 63 people!  The logistics of moving the equipment and the kids and coaches, getting fuel, lunches and water, and launching and registrations at each event was a nightmare!  Thank you to the team coordinators: Michelle Hayes, AL Braun, and Mary Almany who organized it all and kept the wheels on the bus!
