Indian Summer Regatta (FS/M15/PORT #2) & ILCA Dinghy Fall Regatta

Event Notice

Sunday Sept 24, 2023



9/23/2023 1200: Racing for Sunday has been canceled due to the affects of Tropical Storm Ophelia and the expected high tides across the Fishing Bay Road.



DESCRIPTION Indian Summer Regatta is an event open to FBYC club members and all sailors interested in racing their sailboat, developing their sailing skills and being part of a great sailing tradition on the Chesapeake Bay.


CLASSES Flying Scot, Melges 15, ILCA, and any class of any three like or unlike one-design boats is also invited to race. The Portsmouth Number (D-PN-2) handicapping system will be used to score classes of unlike boats. If there are fewer than three Portsmouth class boats they may participate in a parent class fleet (eg. Flying Scot) and race against them under the Portsmouth system. They will receive a Portsmouth score for this race day but will not be counted towards series scoring. The parent class will still maintain their own separate class scoring.

LATE REGISTRATION & CHECK IN At 0900 on the downstairs porch of the main clubhouse. Skippers Meeting may be held at 0930 started by the PRO and followed by the Fleet Captains with any desired fleet discussion, questions, tips, etc.

WARNING The first warning signal will be at 1100

FALL SERIES SCORING Races run under this event will also count towards the overall Fall Series.  The Fall Series winner in each class or subclass will be the qualified boat having the highest score for the series based on the “High-Point Percentage Scoring System.” Daily awards are awarded based on the “Low-Point Scoring System”.

REGISTRATION To be eligible for scoring, all participants must register prior to the start of the first race.  Event registration, information and notices can be found at the event website on Regatta Network
