Slow conversion to new website

Posted by Strother Scott on

We continue to make gradual changes to the website navigation and behavior. This notice is simply to advise you that as you visit our website, you may begin to see unfamiliar looking pages as I have begun movement of pages from the old site https://www.fbyc.net/ to the new one https://new.fbyc.net/.

In the last couple weeks, most links under Club on the blue navigation bar were moved to the new site. For example https://new.fbyc.net/pages/club/ now shows what formerly was seen at https://www.fbyc.net/Club/A/ This week I have copied the content on many other pages linked on the blue nav bar and created pages on the new site. You may run across those pages if you use the blue navigation bar on the new site. Once I get them right, I will change the links on the Zope blue nav bar to send you to the pages on the new site.

I am sure I will have made errors and if you spot an issue, please let me know. More complicated pages that involve the database are not being moved yet.

My goal for this year is to move most member interaction with the website to the new site. When we reach that goal, there will no longer be any need for the average member to log into two websites particularly when it come to registering for events.

Let's Make One Design Great Again!

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

We’ve got to make One Design great again!

The first thing we need to do is drain the swamp.  That’s right drain the swamp!  We have the third race in the Spring Series coming up this Saturday and we’re looking for a good showing.

Noel Clinard is the PRO and he has a great day planned for us.  So all you One Design boat owners get out there and drain the swamp that has built up in your boats from sitting all winter and come on out and race. Show the good old boys how to do it.

After the racing, stop by for a first class social being arranged by Abigail Whorley. So drain the swamp and make One Design great again!

Great Adult Sailing Lessons On Board the Club Boats Last Weekend!

Posted by Brian Ankrom on

 

Members Dave and Caroline Keys, Bill and Claire Prior, Nancy Harrison, and Dean Smith learned the ropes (and the lines, and the sheets) and are eager to get back behind the tiller whenever they can.  Said Nancy, "I love being able to take out a boat on my own!"

Thanks to CNU graduate and sailing team member Laura Kilgore for teaching the classes...and keeping her cool when the J24 had engine trouble while going into Jackson Creek.  And thanks to Chilcott and her crew for giving them a tow!

The Club boats are easy to reserve and the cost for the entire family is only $100 for an entire season.  Click here to sign up using our registration form
