While the Kids are Away…Adults Can Learn and Have Some Fun

Calling all Junior parents--or grandparents for that matter! 

Junior Week is great fun for our kids, but can involve a lot of "down time" for the adults.  This year, we’re offering all adults the opportunity to increase their sailing skills with some custom-tailored sessions held right at the club.  (We especially hope our female sailors will attend to increase their confidence out on the water.)

Two instructors from the Annapolis Seamanship School will be running these workshops.  One especially unique opportunity is the "Hands-on Diesel Mechanics" session with a portable diesel engine.  You’ll be able to see, hear and touch a diesel in action—and learn how to do some basic trouble shooting.   There's a session on using an IPad for navigation and two tailored-made workshops just for FBYC sailors—docking at the club and anchoring in our neck of the bay. 

All members are encouraged to sign up; not just Junior parents!  Although these may appear just for large boat sailors, everyone from Flying Scot racers to 15-ton cruisers can learn something new.  Sign-up now for one or more sessions.

You can also email Karen Soule at if you’ve any further questions.  See you there!
