Event Managers

  • Event Chair: Julie Ann Wash


Sat and Sun Aug 1 - 2, 2020


DESCRIPTION Back by popular demand for Fishing Bay females!  A two day sailing/ racing clinic for women of all degrees of experience and age, with a combination of classroom learning and on-the-water time.  

Flying Scot sailboats will be used for the on-the-water portion, and the Event Chair will coordinate your spot on a boat. We encourage you to bring your own boat, but there will be club-owned boats available. If you own or have use of a boat that is not a Flying Scot, we are open to any small boats joining! Just let us know so we can make sure it’s a good fit.

The clinic will have two class offerings so please choose your preferred class when registering.

1) Sailing Basics (beginners): For the novice or someone with a bit of sailing knowledge. Improving basic sailing knowledge, gaining comfort with boat handling; not racing focused. You can be a skipper or crew when on the water, depending on your comfort level. 
2) Advanced Racing class: For those familiar with racing. Increased boat handling skills, increasing “tiller time”, racing strategy and tactics. You can be a skipper or crew, depending on your comfort level. 

EVENT CHAIRS Julie Ann Wash is the Event Chair for this event. .

ENTRY FEE No fee for club members – a great member benefit! $160 fee for non-members.

REGISTRATION Advance registration for clinic is expected at www.fbyc.net under the documents tab. There are limited spots due to availability of boats. Save your spot today!
