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.
