Web Site Software Upgrade Complete

Club News
Several months ago our web site software was upgraded by Baymountain, a company in Richmond led by our Offshore Lt. Commander, Mark Wensell. The upgrade was completed - except the ability to search articles on the main FBYC web page. So recently the main page has displayed all the posted articles. Now we are pleased to say that the search capability has returned, so the number of articles, and therefore the time to load the page into your browser, has been reduced.

You can find older articles by clicking on Search, or the Subject Images. Thanks to Mark and Baymountain for providing and continuing to manage the software and infrastructure for our web site. Please let us know if you see …

You are invited to the 2002 Sailing Events Planning Meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to begin to plan the sailing schedule for the coming year for the Offshore, One Design, Junior Activities and Cruising Divisions. We are interested in your input and opinions as to what events we should schedule, how many, when, what should be changed, added, or deleted. It would be especially helpful for the past Offshore Division Cdr, One Design Division Cdr. and all Fleet Captains to canvas your sailors for what they want. We also need to consider how to get more boats on the water for all fleets.The meeting will be held on November 19, 6 PM, in the Second Floor Auditorium …

FBYC Memorabilia Wanted

Jere Dennison on

New Building
We are searching for old photographs and other items of significance portraying the long history of FBYC to permanently display on the walls of our new clubhouse. Currently we are in possession of a small number of photographs from the 1940’s through the 1960’s scavenged from scrapbooks maintained by the late Mac Wellford, a founding member of the yacht club in 1939. But we would like to assemble a more complete collection that will commemorate our history through the present day. If you have meaningful items from any era that may be appropriate to display, I would appreciate your contacting me with your ideas. Thank you.
