Clark and Paula Dennison; Ann Murray (Jere's Sister)

Jere's Legacy Regatta was a wonderful event! There was excellent race course management by the race committee under trying conditions of shifty winds.  There were three races and nineteen boats started the first race.  The Regatta consisted of three boat divisions;  Flying Scots (8), Typhoons (3), Portsmouth Class (8).  The weather was perfect for this type of fun racing - and - no protests.

The Regatta social was outstanding.  There was an enjoyable continental breakfast before the race.  In addition to the racing, the after race awards social was a highlight of the event.  There were approximately 70 people in attendance.  Event sailors, family, friends of Jere - all to have fun and pay homage ...

Social Events

The Annapolis Boat Show is the sailing world’s best land-based, gunk-hole gathering.  Where else can you talk to experts about everything sailing, buy anything sailing related at discount prices, and most importantly, step aboard a gazillion number of boats....and either see your dream boat or decide you still like your own boat best?

Come along with your fellow members and friends as we travel to the show’s VIP Day, Thursday, October 4, 2018 by coach bus.  We’ll leave Richmond at 7 am with coffee and bagels on board and arrive in Annapolis in time for the show’s opening at 10 am.  You’ll have the entire day to explore, shop and simply soak up everything ...

What began as an escape is now an FBYC can't miss event!

This Saturday; on your own schedule, following your own course, with your own crew, on your own boat - or not - [thirteen boats currently registered, plenty of time to add more (register here)] will voyage to the Eastern Shore's urban hub of Cape Charles.  We'll overnight at the Cape Charles Harbor docks, socialize until we can't; have dinner when we feel like it; call it a day after last call or before, then on Sunday unwind the course and return to FBYC at our leisure.
