2015 One Design Fleet Captains

Jon Deutsch on Monday January 5, 2015 08:50PM

As we begin 2015 I wanted to introduce our adult One Design fleet captains for the year:

24/5055 Len Guenther/Barb Guenther

Flying Scot
Len Guenther

Len has been fleet captain before and is a regular racer in the Flying Scot and Laser fleets.  He also crews on J/70s when he has the chance.  You'll often find Len sailing with his wife Barb. In addition to racing at FBYC, Len has taken his Flying Scot to numerous ACC and North American Championships.

157552 Frank Murphy

Frank Murphy

Frank is a long-time member of the Laser fleet and regularly participates in our Laser series as well as the Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship.  Known to Laser Masters as one of Alain's chef helpers.  Frank also has a big boat that he races in PHRF. This is Frank's first year taking the helm of the Laser Fleet.

7/27 Front Runner sailing in the FBYC Summer Sea Breeze Regatta with Marie.

Front Runner
Jon Deutsch

Known for Laser sailing, but less known for sailing anything he can get his hands on - Jon Deutsch takes over the reign as the Front Runner Fleet captain for 2015.  Over the past few years Jon has jumped at any chance to sail a Front Runner and has usually sported newbie crew when he does - and he even wins a race every now and again against the grizzled Front Runner stalwarts of the fleet.


Blake Kimbrough

FBYC's newest fleet - the J/70's number 10 strong this year going into their 3rd year of existance.  Blake Kimbrough, shown with his wife Julia along with Blake's father Lud have been busy with their new J/70 (Nostalgia) over the past 2 years competing in everything from FBYC Friday night racing to the World Championship in Newport R.I. last year.

 If you are interested in sailing in these fleets or want more information - contact any of the fleet captains or contact One Design Division Commander - Jon Deutsch.
