Laser Masters Atlantic Coast Championship

Posted by Frank Murphy on

FBYC's Laser Masters sailor, Charlie Brewer shines at the Atlantic Coast Championships hosted by the Sayville Yacht Club on Long island Sound held on 16 and 17 July.  Thirty-seven competitors race for the championship with adjustments made to their scores based upon age.  Charlie easily won his age group and was third overall.  The legendary Peter Seidenberg, winner of numerous World,  North American, European and National championships, as well as the father of the much loved Seitech Dolly was first overall.

FBYC continues to enjoy an outstanding reputation throughout the country not only for its strong junior sailing program but also for its ability to ably conduct major regattas.  The annual Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship routinely attracts skippers from as far away as Canada because of the quality of the sailing, comraderie of the sailors and the always anticipated Saturday night dinner.  

August Captain's Choice Cruise

Posted by John Koedel on

The August Captains Choice Cruise is coming soon, Aug 26 - 28.  Start making plans to join us.  Not sure where we're going yet but we'll pick something fun.  Probably a raft up.  Come join us on Friday night, the 26th at 7pm,  for ice-cream at Fannie's House.  We tend to have kid friendly cruises so all are welcome.  John Koedel, III, (804) 338-1158,

Docks Meeting Reminder: Sunday, July 31st at 10 am.

Posted by David Lennarz on

At the June Board Meeting the Docks Planning Committee presented their assessment of the Jackson Creek docks.  This was a two-phase process that took many volunteers 18 months to complete.  To learn more about the Docks Committee findings and recommendations, please attend one of several upcoming presentations.  The first meeting is scheduled for this Sunday, July 31st, at 10 am upstairs in the main club house.  A second one will be held at the club on Monday, September 5th (Labor Day) at 10 am.  Additional meetings will likely be held in Richmond this Fall.

77th Annual One Design Regatta

Posted by Jon Deutsch on

77th AODFishing Bay Yacht Club's 77th Annual One Design Regatta is just around the corner and we wanted to let you know about a couple great ways to spend the weekend at the club.


We'll have two courses of racing with starts for Optis, Lasers, Radials, Front Runners, Flying Scots, a Portsmouth fleet and any other classes with 7 or more boats.  The regatta features 2 days of racing on the Piankatank River with Saturday dinner and drinks included in registration.  Online Registration before 8/8 requested.  (Notice Of Race)


Come spend the weekend being a volunteer and see the spectacle of 75-100 boats racing on the Piankatank.  This is a great way to meet your fellow club members, be a part of making our volunteer club work, and even have some fun.  We're looking for help with Race Committee, Tractor Drivers, Bartenders & Registration. Interested?  Email Us.


A buffet dinner will be served around 6pm.  Come join us for bbq chicken, mac and cheese and grill vegetables on the lawn at the club.  Pre-order by 8/8 for $20 (drinks included). Register here and select the 'social registration'.

Deltaville Water System Update: Progress Toward Deployment Trickles Along

Posted by David Lennarz on

In a recent Press Release, the Middlesex Water Authority reported on their vote to continue negotiations with contractor Sydnor Hyrdo for deployment of a water system in Deltaville.  According to Carlton Revere, Chairman of the Middlesex Water Authority, "a suitable and sustainable water system should be achievable."  The public-private partnership was unsuccessful recently in achieving its goal of 190 additional subscribers.  Only 42 new subscriptions were added during the last incentivized connection period which ended June 3rd.  

However, perhaps more importantly the Water Authority has been offered an initial funding package from the Virginia Department of Health's Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund consisting of a low interest loan in the amount of $10.2 million at 2.65% for 30 years, and has until July 24th to accept the loan package.  The next Middlesex Water Authority meeting will be held on July 13th at 7 pm.  Pending successful negotiations and status of a contract with Sydnor Hydro, the Water Authority may vote to move to execute a final agreement to deploy a central water system in Deltaville and accept a loan package with the Virginia Health Department.
