Flying Scots

Flying Scots at the startThe Second Annual Flying Scot Atlantic Coast Championship was held this past weekend at the Fishing Bay Yacht Club. Thirty-five boats came from New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina to compete in the five race series.

Near perfect conditions - both on the water and off - made for a very memorable weekend. Saturday's three races were held in conditions that made for some exciting racing with winds up to 20 knots. Sunday's two races saw about 10 knots for a calmer pace.

In the twenty-three boat Championship Division, David and Allyson Neff from the Selby Bay Sailing Center in Maryland, continued their winning ways to take top honors for their second ACC title, Capitol District Championship, and the …

Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters

Jon Deutsch on


Mother Nature was smiling down on Deltaville Virginia this weekend with beautiful conditions while Laser Masters sailors competed in the 24th Annual Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship. Eighteen sailors got in 9 races in two days to sail for the championship in 10-15 knot breezes and sunny skies throughout the weekend.

Hair of the Dog!

Eric Powers on

Offshore Racing
Assuming Ophelia skips town this coming weekend we'll all have a chance to redeem ourselves for last year's scrape with her bully brother Ivan during the 2004 Wolf Trap Race. This will also be our last chance this season to pinch points for the Offshore Long Distance Series, which by then will include five events. With a few notable exceptions, this 24+ nautical mile race is usually accompanied by pleasant late summer breezes and sparkling seas. May the Big Bad Wolf stay trapped beneath the shoals this time around. Anyone wanting to taste the hair of the dog and/or engage the upcoming Fall Series should make a point to register on line and make sure your PHRF …

Smashing Pumpkins!

Junior Activities
Five Fishing Bay Juniors tacked their way through the pumpkin patch this Sunday in search of fairer winds at Corsica River Yacht Club. Light and fickle winds teased the 45+ boat Optimist fleet with surprise shifts and puffs throughout the four race series. Parents and sailors alike were rewarded for their patience with a big tent cookout after the race. Top honors went to two Fishing Bay sailors with Alex Jacob in 1st and Kyle Swenson in 3rd for overalls in the red/blue/white fleets. Austin Powers and Kendall Swenson lined up for 1st and 4th respectively in the white fleet and Erin Jacob climbed well up into the pack of green fleeters.
