Fishing Bay Yacht Club is 75 in 2014!

And we're going to make this a special year with new and improved events!


Our Plans Include:

New Registration Form

Posted by Jon Deutsch on

We've rolled out some pretty cool changes to our online registration form which should make it easier to fill out the information.

To start - for events that allow Social only registration - there's a selection at the top of the form and if Social is selected, boat information is no longer required.  This eliminates the need to fill dummy boat information for social-only regitrations.

The entry fields are a lot cleaner with a small icon indicating required information.  The form is much more intuitive with much less legalese on it.  If a field is forgotten when trying to register - it's shaded red to make it easy to find.

After hitting the 'Register' button - if there is information missing - there is now a summary of the missing information at the top of the page.  Simply click each item and you will be jumped down the page to where the information is missing.


And finally the 'Register Online Now' button is disabled preventing one source of duplicate entries.

FBYC Junior Racers Smoking HOT!!!

Posted by Meg Rock on

Breaking News: two of our High School seniors and Laser Race Team members swept the Interscholastic Sailing Association Mid-Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Association (MASSA) Singlehanded Qualifier for the Cressy Trophy, sailed in Lasers, held September 13 and 14 in Oyster Bay, New York!  Eric Roos won the Full Rig Division and Alexander Hanna won the Radial Division, meaning FBYC Juniors  won both single handed divisions!  This prestigious regatta included high school sailors from New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Delaware,  Maryland and Virginia.  It qualifies Eric and Alexander to race at the Cressy Singlehanded Finals at Bellingham Yacht Club, Bellingham, Washington, October 31-November 2.  Break out the MasterCards Mom and Dad!

Boyd Bragg and Benton Amthor qualified to represent FBYC at this regatta held at Monmouth Boat Club in Red Bank, New Jersey by placing first and second at the Chesapeake Bay Junior Olympics last July.  This prestigious youth regatta, held the last week end of August, dates from 1914, and includes qualifiers from eight sailing associations from Massachusetts to Virginia.  Only FBYC qualified to send two Optis from the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Association.  After two hard days of racing, Boyd and Benton were tied with a third junior for second!  The three way tie was decided by the results of the final race, placing Boyd third and Benton fourth.  Fantastic job!
At the first practice we had 10 Optis, and 12 are participating through the Fall.  The first regatta will be this week end when the team travels to the Atlanta Yacht Club on Lake Altoona for the USODA Southeastern Championships.  The families rented a large lake front cottage overlooking the club, where everyone will stay!  Stay tuned for another exciting report!
For the 16th year, FBYC is supporting the St. Christopher and St. Catherine High School Sailing Team by providing our 420s, coach boats and team members.  The team is currently racing through October in and around the Richmond and Tidewater area against other high schools teams.  Laser Race Team members Nathaniel Llewellyn, Graeme Alderman and Ralph Levy are on the team.
Finally, we have multiple juniors skippering and crewing with their parents on the J-70 and Hampton One Design Bay Circuits: Gannon Troutman, Daniel Resio, Guthrie Braun, Jackson Montague and Latane Montague!  Jackson and his Dad placed second at the Hampton One Design Nationals! Congrats to all!
Mark Hayes, Junior Division Commander

Eric Roos Wins MASSA Cressy Qualifier

Posted by Jon Deutsch on

Atlee High School sailor and FBYC Member Eric Roos won the Singlehanded Mid-Atlatic Scholastic Sailing Association Qualifier and will represent his school at the High School National Championship later this fall.

On Saturday following 1030 harbor start, first gun was 1130. Races were sailed in an easterly ranging from 12+, dropping down to 6 kts. Courses were modified windward/leewards. Four races were sailed until the rain moved in and we lost the breeze, leading to an abandoned fifth race. One protest was filed and heard before dinner.

Sunday morning's breeze started at N/NW at 12kts, shifted due North and then settled back N and dropped in velocity. First gun was at 9:51am. Six races were completed to bring the total to ten quality races sailed.

2014 Turkey Shoot Regatta Coming Up

Posted by Jon Deutsch on

This year the 2014 Hospice Turkey Shoot Regatta at Rappahannock River Yacht Club has been moved up a weekend and quite a few FBYC boats are planning on taking part.  88 boats are already registered and range from 18' to over 45' and all of them must be of a design that is 25 or more years old.

This is an annual benefit for the local Hospice organization and FBYC's big boat racing has the weekend off - so consider heading down the Rappahannock and joining the fun.
