At its meeting last night, the Middlesex Water Authority (MWA) announced its decision to terminate negotiations with Synor Hydro and the planned water system. It will be refunding subscriber deposits, including the deposit given by FBYC. The MWA expressed concern that project construction costs could significantly exceed estimates and that ongoing maintenance and service costs would exceeed initial projections by as much as $37 per month per residence; the MWA Board determined that these risks made moving forward imprudent. Instead, it will consider other, as-yet unidentified alternatives. The meeting was well attended, and the crowd extremely disappointed with the announcement. The next meeting is scheduled for September 14, 2016.
Would you please inform the Docks Chairman if your slip will be vacant labor day weekend, when you intend to leave and return. We have yachts visiting for Stingray Regatta and this information will help to avoid confusion and assist the task of accommodating our visitors without disruption to our members.
The Middlesex Water Authority will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, August 24th at 6 pm in Saluda. Fishing Bay Yacht Club will be represented by Commodore Bennett. As a reminder, the Club has already submitted subscription documents and is hopeful the project will come to fruition. We encourage individual members and Deltaville home owners to attend and voice support for this very important project. For further information, email Vice Commodore David Lennarz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On July 31st club members Clark Dennison, Matt Braun, and Hunter Davidson lauched club-owned Easy To Slip, a J-24 donated by club member Cam Cosby.

On Sunday, July 31st, approximately 20 club members gathered upstairs at the club house to view a presentation about a proposed East dock replacement. The proposal is to replace the East dock with a floating dock within 2-3 years time. Commdore Bennett and Vice Commodore Lennarz explained the reasoning behind the proposal, the plan to pay for the replacement, and answered questions about the proposal from those in attendance. The meeting lasted one hour. For those who missed this meeting, the next similar meeting will be held on Monday, September 5th (Labor Day) at 10 am upstairs in the club house. Since part of the financing of the plan includes an increase in all slip fees, all slip-holders …

Attention Members! Several guest racing boats from up and down the Chesapeake Bay are planning their trip to the Stingray Point Regatta September 2-4th. One of the biggest hurdles facing visiting race teams is finding a place for the crew to stay.

Make sure to let her know price, date available, and number of sleeping berths available. Even if you only have one extra room in your home available, and would be willing to host crew, for free or for a fee, let us know!
