Friday Evenings at Fishing Bay

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

Come join fellow members on Friday evenings at Fishing Bay YC this summer!

The club is sponsoring Friday evening gatherings this summer to kick off the weekend from June 2 and running through August 25.  The club will provide snacks and beverage mixers.  The grills will be fired up for anyone who would like to grill dinners.

Get together with other FBYC members and bring a friend to enjoy good fellowship of other sailors and the beautiful settings of our club.

Junior Programs Start on June 10 with Opti Kids!

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

We are less than a month away from the start of the 2017 summer Junior programs and we need your help!  We have a score of campers who need Optis for the Opti Kids weekends and Junior Week.

Please contact A.L. Braun (AnnLisa.Braun@bdnreit.com) if you have an Opti to spare and would like to help one of our campers.

The Junior Program volunteers and participants would greatly appreciate any gear donation you could make – we especially need sails.

Thank you for your support!

Open House Regatta | Yacht Entries

Posted by Jim Raper on

As of Monday evening, 14 boats are entered...not naming names...but; missing from year's past...a Snipe, a Petrel, a Sakonnet or three, several Flying Scots and FrontRunners, a laser, a certain large blue boat that just arrived on the middle dock, a certain little blue boat whose skipper attempted to poach crew from a red boat on the middle dock, an S2 7.9 or three, a J anything under 35 feet, a beautiful black boat named 'spirit of the air' in Finnish, a C&C, a Saber, and the club has both a J24 and a Flying Scot that both should really be in this event!  This is a fun race with a great on water raft up and party to follow.  We have a great club with great folks who love to sail beautiful boats...I bet we can start and finish 40 boats this coming Sunday...see you all at the skippers' meeting Sunday Morning and afterward at the raft up.

Always an AWESOME day both on and off the water.  After a staggered start distance race open to all sailing vessels of any size, all boats assemble in a sunflower formation in Fishing Bay, effectively creating a big swimming hole in the center...after which everyone disbands to head ashore for a good old fashioned pig pickin' with bar and band.

Skippers' Meeting
1100: First warning signal for racers 
1200 - 1600: Sunflower raft up 
1300: Racing boats finishing, spectators watch from pier 
1700 - 1830: Onshore Happy Hour 
1830: Pig Pickin' and dinner by DAVID's WHITE HOUSE!
1800 - 2200: Live Entertainment by JACKASS FLATS!

Sign up now to reserve your dinner tickets!  Deadline for purchase: Tuesday, May 23 - ONE WEEK AWAY! 

Sailing vessels may attend only the raft-up if desired.  Please be sure to indicate this in your registration so we know you are coming.

Spend the Weekend at FBYC!

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

Want to spend the weekend at the club but don't have a boat or a place to stay?  Here's the answer:

  1.   Reserve either the club's J24 or Flying Scot for the day by using the form found here.  For $100, you'll have unlimited use of the boats for the entire season.  If you sign up to use a boat for either June 3 or July 16 you'll also receive FIVE hours of instruction in how to sail.  Heck of a deal!
  2.   Set up a tent, blow up a mattress and go "glamping!"
