The Wee Dram will venture on August 28th again to Cape Charles.  In 2020 it was noted that members would not allow a pandemic and/or hurricane to come between them and loosely organized rally followed by a socially responsible social. This is a family friendly event, except for the brown bag judging. This a non-spinnaker, single headsail event.  All crews are to overnight aboard.  Please check fbyc.net for most current updates/changes.

Start:  Each boat will start herself and record the time that the bow of the boat crosses a line between R #2 and G #P1, just south east of Stingray Light.  Also known as E & F.  You may start anytime after 7:00am on Thursday, August 26, 2021.

Course:  Wolf Trap Light is not a mark of the course and may be left to either Port or Starboard. 

Finish:  Each boat will record their finish time when the helm position is within 100 yards due west of G “1CC” Fl G 2.5s (marking the entrance of the Cherrystone Inlet Channel and Cape Charles Harbor).

As votes for the most inspiring brown bag are being tallied, adjusted cruising elapsed times will be determined and the 2021 Wee Dram burgee awarded, along with what remains of the contents in the winning brown bag, to the boat with lowest adjusted time.

The social on the dock will begin at 5:30 PM.  Each boat will bring an appetizer to share, and one brown bag bottle of their favorite Scotch Whisky (no 'e') for the contest within the contest.
