LAUNCHING, MOORING and STORAGE:
FBYC has a "bay side" and a "creek side" to its campus, which is on a
narrow isthmus. There is a concrete ramp on the bay side for trailer
launched boats. FBYC also has a hoist on the creek side. An additional
hoist facility may be arranged at a nearby marina and an additional
trailer launching facility has been arranged at a local community
association. The Registration Form has a space for each participant to
select dry sailing or wet sailing and the preferred method of launching,
subject to availability. Car parking will be in FBYC lots and nearby
fields. The bay side is sheltered from prevailing winds, but can get
rough in a southerly wind, so overnight mooring there is not
recommended. The creek side and marina basin are sheltered and virtually
never get rough. See the Chart of Racing Area and aerial photo of the
neighborhood for an overview of the area.
NOR and SAILING INSTRUCTIONS:
The NOR and Registration Form are now available above on this site and
on www.fssa.com. The NOR was published in
the January-February 2007 Issue of Scots-n-Water. The Sailing
Instructions will be available at the conclusion of registration as
stated in the NOR.
