CHANGES TO THE 2013 CRUISING DIVISION EVENTS SCHEDULE
As it turns out, the Mathews Yacht Club has moved its opening day to April 27th instead of the first weekend in May (May 4th). They are expecting and welcoming the FBYC Cruising Group to their event. To accommodate this change, we are moving the May 4-5th Mathews Yacht Club cruise to April 27-28th.. Our April 25-28th Captain’s Choice cruise is moved to May 2-5th.. Cruisers, please mark your 2013 Sailing Events Book on pages 70 & 71 to reflect these changes. If you have questions, contact John and Fay Koedel.
