2015 Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters NOR

Posted by Jon Deutsch on
The NOR is now posted and online registration is now open for the 2015 Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship on October 17-18.

Fishing Bay Yacht Club will host the 34th Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship this October.  FBYC's Laser Fleet will welcome sailors from around the mid-Atlantic and beyond for great sailing, great food, and great friends.

Alain Vincey will be back to put on another great dinner and our RC team lead by PRO Rick Klein will be back again to put on solid racing.

Visit the Notice of Race and Register Online before October 12 to get the early discount.  T-shirts will be available to those who register early while supplies last.

Web Hosting change

Posted by R. Strother Scott on

On Saturday we moved our web site to a new hosting provider   Because of a quirk in our technology, our old provider shut the site down for 5-10 minutes from time to time.  Digital Ocean offers a more flexible service that should allow our site to operate flawlessly.  Let's hope so! 

Paul Wash made the needed changes to the IOS App, so it is up and running on the relocated database.

Please let me know if you run across any issues. Strother Scott.

Please be aware that the power to all the docks has been switched off and will remain off until at least Monday or Tuesday depending on the level of the high tides.

Hurricane Joaquin

Posted by Meg Rock on
FBYC Members:
We are closely monitoring the track of Hurricane Joaquin. 

We request that all boat owners, those with vessels on the FBYC docks as well as those in dry storage, secure their property in preparation for high winds and abnormally high tides.   Although Club Manager Dixon Cole and others may be present during the upcoming storm, FBYC is not responsible for damage to your vessel or damage your vessel may cause to others. 

Please continue to monitor email and the FBYC web site for any additional notices or updates.

Thank you.

Laser Fall Regatta Cancellation

Posted by William F. Murphy on

Tomorrow's Laser Fall Regatta is cancelled due to the weather forecast and predicted coastal flooding that would make it difficult to come and go from the club.

Indian Summer Regatta: Cancelled

Posted by Jon Deutsch on
The One Design Indian Summer Regatta for Saturday has been canceled. With the very likely outcome of high winds, lots of rain and high tides - the fun factor is probably not going to be high enough for most of us to want to be out there.

As of now the Laser Fall Regatta is still on for Sunday and will be held unless something is posted otherwise.  We'll look see late Saturday if this weather system is sticking around or will be moving off and cancel then if it looks dire.

The next and last one design racing opportunity of the season is the One Design Closing Day and will be held on Sunday, October 11.

Glenn Doncaster (Nanuq) and the crew, Jerry Latell, Bob Fleck, Jimmy Cobb, Alex Otoole, Matt Newborn, and Charles Henderson, will compete for the U.S. Offshore Championship Friday thru Sunday, September 24-27, in Annapolis.  This prestigious championship is hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy and sailed on Navy 44s.  Glen and his Nanuq crew were awarded the right to be one of the representatives from our area through their outstanding offshore results over the past 18 months.

This past weekend, September 19th & 20th, our Fall Opti Race Team dominated at the 2015 USODA Southeast Championship! The regatta was held at Camp Sea Gull, on the Neuse River, in North Carolina. There were 86 boats on the water, and all of our kids had outstanding finishes, including 2nd, 4th and 5th! That is 3 in the top 5! Benton Amthor was 2nd overall, Nathan Smith was 4th overall, and Guthrie Braun was 5th overall. In addition, Reed McAllister was 1st in the White Fleet. We had a total of 10 kids who made the trip, and 6 scored in the top 23, qualifying them for the 2016 USODA Team Trials! Even our youngest and least experienced sailors did outstanding!
