Welcome to the 2nd Open House Regatta

Posted by Jon Deutsch on

Welcome to our second Open House Regatta & Party on Saturday! We’re really excited about this event and can’t wait to go sailing, pig out and have fun with our members and guests.  We've worked hard to put together an event that combines sailing for all sizes and types of boats in a fun atmosphere with food and fun for non-sailors too.

Here's some information about the event and if you have any questions, please let us know.

See you Saturday!

J/70 Clinard Cup

Posted by Jon Deutsch on

FBYC has a new perpetual trophy to recognize J/70s.  The actual award to come later this year.  Look for the events to qualify for this cup to be sent to the FBYC J/70 Email List.  Here's the charter:

Presented in 2015 by Commodore R. Noel Clinard, founding Fleet Captain of J/70 Fleet 5 and registrant of FBYC’s first J/70 yacht, in memory of the travel and local campaigns of J/70 USA 46 “Loonatictu” and her crews.The award is for outstanding performance and participation in J/70 regattas at FBYC and elsewhere, and will be awarded to the boat with the highest number of points in thespecified events selectedby the presiding J/70 Fleet Captain or his/her designee.Points are determined by a modified high points system and individual boat standings in each event. For events other than FBYC Friday Night Series, boats will be scored based on their standings in relation to other FBYC boats. For example, the first place boat in a specified event with 8 FBYC entrants would get 8 points for that event; the second place boat in that event would get 7 points, etc., with the eighth place finisher receiving 1 point. However, for the Stingray Point Regatta, the J/70 World Championship,and the J/70 North American Championship, the points awarded are double what they otherwise would have been, so that the first place boat is awarded points equal to two times the number of FBYC participants. For example, if there are 8 FBYC boats at the Stingray Point Regatta, the first place boat would get 16 points, the second place boat would get 14 points, etc., with the eighth place finisher receiving 2 points. This award will be retiredif the J/70 Fleet losesFBYC fleet status, or atany time at the discretion of the FBYC Board of Trustees.

It is available for Apple devices with ios7 or later.

Big thanks to Paul Wash, the web team and all of the folks who helped test this out over the past few months.

Revised Online Registration Form

Posted by R. Strother Scott on

We have modified the entry form to require a first step to select the Registration type. So when you register, you will see  a choice per the image below.

  • Social Registration only, or
  • Have boat participating.

Once you select your type, the usual input forms for name contact info, and boat if applicable, instantly appear further down the same entry form.  

We found that people who were registering for Social only were running into issues with our online entry form. We hope this small change will make it easier for all.  If you select Social Registration only, you will not be presented with a requirements to enter boat information.

Attention all members! Saturday, May 23rd is our 2nd Annual Open House Regatta and Memorial Day Celebration. And we need you to make this a success!
This year we have modified the format slightly with a shorter FUN race and a longer FUN raft-up. Racing starts at 11 AM, the raft up starts at 12 PM with shuttles running between the club and the sunflower. All in Fishing Bay! We encourage everyone to join the race and the raft up - bring your friends even if they do not sail! The race starts at 11 AM, the raft-up at 12 PM, and the happy hour at 5 ashore. There will be 2 pigs on the smoker, fun activities, and Jackass Flats will play into the night. This is going to be a truly awesome event and fun filled day!
There really is "Something for Everyone" Memorial Day weekend at FBYC - so please plan on attending!
Register here to join the fun! - the dinner registration deadline is NEXT Tuesday, May 19th
By the way we also need volunteers to pull this off (including bartenders and onshore coordinators)! Want to sign up for a volunteer shift click here.
Need more info? Trouble registering? Let us know and we'll get you squared away.

As you make your way to Deltaville, here are a few things you should know:


We have an EARLY start scheduled on Saturday - please note the 0915 skippers meeting and 1030 first warning.  We want to make the most of the day and may even choose to sail on the outside course to get the best conditions - so please arrive early and be ready to sail shortly after the skippers meeting.
