Middlesex Water Authority: No Go for Municipal Water

Posted by David Lennarz on

At its meeting last night, the Middlesex Water Authority (MWA) announced its decision to terminate negotiations with Synor Hydro and the planned water system. It will be refunding subscriber deposits, including the deposit given by FBYC.  The MWA expressed concern that project construction costs could significantly exceed estimates and that ongoing maintenance and service costs would exceeed initial projections by as much as $37 per month per residence;  the MWA Board determined that these risks made moving forward imprudent.  Instead, it will consider other, as-yet unidentified alternatives.  The meeting was well attended, and the crowd extremely disappointed with the announcement.  The next meeting is scheduled for September 14, 2016

Middlesex Water Authority Meeting: Wednesday, August 24th

Posted by David Lennarz on

The Middlesex Water Authority will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, August 24th at 6 pm in Saluda.  Fishing Bay Yacht Club will be represented by Commodore Bennett.  As a reminder, the Club has already submitted subscription documents and is hopeful the project will come to fruition.  We encourage individual members and Deltaville home owners to attend and voice support for this very important project.  For further information, email Vice Commodore David Lennarz at

Easy to Slip Launched

Posted by David Lennarz on

On July 31st club members Clark Dennison, Matt Braun, and Hunter Davidson lauched club-owned Easy To Slip, a J-24 donated by club member Cam Cosby.  After some miscellaneous repairs, the vessell is ready for club member use.  A policy and procedure document is now being drafted;  this will include guidelines on qualifications for use, how to reserve the boat, etc.  More news to follow soon!


Party with Slapnation Band Saturday Night after AOD

Posted by Lud Kimbrough on

Get your groove on Saturday night with The Slapnation Band, playing at the Deltaville Ballpark from 6-9PM.  Bring a beach chair or blanket as well as your best dance shoes.  Adult beverages available.  Don't miss the chance to find yourself on the infield of this classic baseball venue for a rollicking good evening.  Drive into town and turn left on Ballpark Road or park across the street if lots are full.

Meeting about East Dock Held July 31st; next meeting September 5th

Posted by David Lennarz on

On Sunday, July 31st, approximately 20 club members gathered upstairs at the club house to view a presentation about a proposed East dock replacement.   The proposal is to replace the East dock with a floating dock within 2-3 years time.  Commdore Bennett and Vice Commodore Lennarz explained the reasoning behind the proposal, the plan to pay for the replacement, and answered questions about the proposal from those in attendance.  The meeting lasted one hour.   For those who missed this meeting, the next similar meeting will be held on Monday, September 5th (Labor Day) at 10 am upstairs in the club house.  Since part of the financing of the plan includes an increase in all slip fees, all slip-holders and members are encouraged to attend to learn more.

Housing rentals needed September 2-4th for Stingray Point Regatta Racers

Posted by Paul Wash on

Attention Members!   Several guest racing boats from up and down the Chesapeake Bay are planning their trip to the Stingray Point Regatta September 2-4th.  One of the biggest hurdles facing visiting race teams is finding a place for the crew to stay.  If you are interested in renting your home in the Deltaville area, please contact Julie Ann Wash,  Make sure to let her know price, date available, and number of sleeping berths available.  Even if you only have one extra room in your home available, and would be willing to host crew, for free or for a fee, let us know! Sailors love racing at our club for its well run events and beautiful location.  Let's help remove the problem of finding a place to stay!
