It's been a great year and we are looking forward to many more!

FBYC 75th

Thanks for coming!

Our Plans Include:

Website Date Issue

Posted by R. Strother Scott on

Last week after the upgrade, we identified and fixed a few issues.  Yesterday we noticed a new Date issue.  The Fall Project Day is on Saturday Dec 6, and it was showing up as Dec 5 in some cases.  The issue is now fixed. 

The event is on Saturday!

Welcome to the 2015 FBYC Junior Division!

Welcome to the 2015 FBYC Junior Division!

We are excited about the 2015 Junior Sailing season at Fishing Bay Yacht Club!  We are looking forward to another great year of Fun.  No matter your sailor's age, experience and sailing goals, we have an event to excite them and get them out on the water with their friends.  Our philosophy is that if kids have fun sailing with their friends, they will come back for more!  And remember-parents and grandparents are always welcome to join in the fun!

On the agenda will be fall leaf pick-up and grounds winterization. Simply show up on Saturday and sign in or contact me at or 804.241.6080 for additional details or special assignments and/or register online.  

See you on December 6th.

Ken Odell, Grounds Chairman

Another Website upgrade and issues

Posted by R. Strother Scott on

Eugene has upgraded Zope, the engine behind the website to the latest version and a few errors are popping up.  No event pages are visible and you may find you can not search the database for families at though Search for Member works fine.  Good thing we waited until the sailing season was over!  Please let me know if you see other errors so we can address them.

Juniors Still Racing!

Posted by Meg Rock on

FBYC Juniors continue to show up everywhere!   Pictured above (and waiting for the wind) is Laser Race Team member Luke Hayes, who in September clinched Second Place in the Portsmouth Division in the year long series-also sailed against adults-at Lake Townsend Yacht Club, in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Luke and fellow Laser Race Team member Nina Willms also mixed it up with the adults at the September and November Laser Regattas at home at FBYC.  Team members Ralph Levy, Nathaniel Llewelyn and Graeme Alderman also completed their Fall series in 420s in High School racing in October.  

For a great story about two of our juniors racing in the Offshore Division, check out the article about Ned and Anne-Kinsey Wash working the foredeck aboard Cheeky Monkey in the Cut Channel Race in the November Log!  Ned and Anne-Kinsey are two of our hot young juniors, and their parents teach Opti-Kids.  Of course they are natural sailors!  You will be impressed.

We still have one 2014 event left.  Over Thanksgiving Boyd and Reese Bragg and Benton Amthor will race (and fly our colors!) at the USODA Opti Mid-Winters in New Orleans. Look for a report in the coming weeks.

Finally-congrats to all those who received awards at the Commodore’s Ball!  Look for an article in the December Log about all the recipients.

FBYC Juniors take 9th at J-70 Bay Championships!

Posted by Meg Rock on

FBYC Opti Race Team member Gannon Troutman skippered-and steered his parent's J-70 Pied Piper at the Chesapeake Bay J-70 Championships on November 1 at the Club to a 9th place finish against adults!  FBYC Junior sailor and Laser Race Team member Daniel Resio was among the crew.  The conditions were brutal, with gusts to 30 knots and very cold.  At one point they suffered a severe knock-down, and Gannon’s Dad, also crewing, went in the water!  In the photo above Gannon is receiving the trophy for the Youngest Skipper from Event Chair-and former Junior Division Commander-Noel Clinard.

Eric and Alexander Fly the FBYC Colors!

Posted by Meg Rock on

As reported last month, Eric Roos and Alexander Hanna won the Cressy Singlehanded Qualifier sailed in Lasers and Laser Radials on September 13-14 in Oyster Bay, New York.  Eric won the Full Rig, and Alexander the Radial, qualifying them for the Cressy Singlehanded Finals at Bellingham Yacht Club, in Washington State, on October 31-November 2.  Both families flew out, and both our sailors raced great against the toughest competition in the country!  The first day featured heavy, heavy rains and flat calms.  The RC kept both fleets on the water for 8 hours in the downpour, and ran only two short races.  Late in afternoon the rains cleared and for a few moments the sun sparkled on the mountains around Bellingham Bay.  It did not look like Fishing Bay in July!  The second day was drier but with shifty 15 knot winds and heavy currents.  Our sailors turned in wonderful finishes-Alexander 7th overall in Radials and Eric 14th in Full.  The Hanna and Roos families turned the trip into a family vacation, with a lot of sightseeing.  Love those FBYC pennies!

On November 9th the Godspeed moored overnight in Fishing Bay.  The ship is a replica of the original Godspeed, which  brought settlers to Jamestown in 1607.  She is normally berthed at Jamestown Settlement.  Maybe we can get her back for Junior Week!
