One Design Season Kicks Off This Week End

Posted by Joe Nelson on

 

Hello,

 

Saturday kicks off the One Design race season with the Spring Series Race 1. We’ve Set Fire to the Rain so the forecast calls for sunny skies and winds in the low teens, perfect for racing. We won’t be Rollin in the Deep like the off-shore folks; instead, we will be in Fishing Bay like we normally do with Brad Squires as PRO. And, remembering last year, we all look forward to RuthAnna Jenkins Turning Tables in the kitchen as Social Chair.

 

Rumor Has It that two weeks ago several boats in the fleet got an early start to the season when a training day was held at the club. We extend many thanks to Rob Whittemore and John Wake who coached the group giving away all, well, almost all, of their secrets. Meanwhile, Sharon Wake put together a fantastic array of snacks for after training discussions.

 

Don’t You Remember what it’s like to have a full line of boats on the starting line. Wouldn’t it be great to see that again this week end. Yes, we’re looking for Someone Like You to come out and race this Saturday. Who knows maybe you will be the One and Only who goes out and Takes it All.

 

Sweetest Devotion,

 

A

New to Sailing? Learning is as easy as 1-2-3

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

1. Visit our website, click on “Get Sailing/Adult Sailing” and sign-up for a day of sailing lessons on either Saturday, May 6; Saturday, June 3; or Sunday, July 16. You’ll learn basic sailing principles and how to rig a Flying Scot or J24.

2. Once you’ve taken a class, you now qualify as a skipper and can reserve a boat any day of the week. Go cruising or race. It’s up to you.

3. There is NO COST for any of these classes. For a one season charge of $100 per family, you can sail either boat whenever they are available—and reserve one in advance twice a month.

But let’s say you already know how to sail, have a Virginia boating license and just want to give either of these boats a spin. For you it’s equally simple. We are now taking daylong reservations for both boats on-line. Again, go to “Adult Sailing” on the website and reserve a boat. Use your credit card to pay the $100 for unlimited seasonal use and you’re good to go.

Both boats will be in the water ready for you to hop on board. Whether you need to learn to sail, want to race or would like to try out a different type of boat, these boats are yours. Sign up and cast off today!

Clouds & Rain Couldn’t Stop Another Great Opening Weekend!

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

Opening Day 2017 started with the annual flag raising ceremony & captain’s meeting for the first race of the year. Tirteen boats participated in five division races in this year’s Opening Day Regatta.  Joe Roos & the Flag Officers met with new members in the Clubhouse shortly after racing finished for the day. Please take a minute to welcome these new members!
- Judy Miller
- Rich & Jean Rhame
- JD, Kaitlyn, & Aiden Blackwell
- Craig, Mary, Finn, & Henry Ciszewski

Cocktail hour began in Ric’s Place & the Blessing of the Fleet started shortly after. A great crowd packed into the Clubhouse for Doug Anderson’s annual officiation. The cannon’s blast delighted one of the Club’s new members & startled resident ospreys.  Dinner catered by David Napier’s White House & music by the Alex Crain Band topped off the evening. The dark & stormy weather made the Clubhouse cozy with everyone inside. Appropriately, Dark & Stormys were the hot item of the night!

FBYC finished Opening Weekend with first series of Offshore Spring Series races took place on Sunday, April 23rd with eight boats in four division races!

Special thanks to:
- Geoff & Allene Cahill for an awesome start to the season
- Doug Anderson for Blessing the Fleet
- Allan Heyward & the Opening Day Regatta committee
- Mike Chesser & the Offshore Spring Series 1 race committee
- Henry Ciszewski for test firing the cannon
