Learn to rig and sail YOUR Flying Scot—THIS SATURDAY at 10 AM

Brian Ankrom on

Flying Scots

Thanks to the recent generosity of Buck Brewster and Marshall Orr, we have two additional Flying Scot Boats for the Club Boat program.  Yay!

 

And this Saturday at 10 am we will hold an orientation session on how to rig, sail and simply have fun on these boats.  Please remember:

  • New members can use the boats for free for first year
  • Existing members can "rent" boats for $100/year/Family
  • Club staff will help launch and retrieve boats (don't need a tow vehicle)

Depending on turnout and the needs of attendees, we will provide:

  • Information on reserving a boat
  • Rigging and stowing tips 
  • Leaving dock (varied wind conditions)
  • Returning to dock (varied wind conditions)
  • How to report boat problems

Movie Night a BIG HIT !!!

Blake Kimbrough on

Social Events

YAM's first ever Movie Night drew a huge crowd with over 40 members!  "The Sandlot" cranked up at 8:45pm and we saw members of all ages joining in the fun...

36684850_10102639794113444_5035999847782547456_n.jpg

Wet weather precluded us from being outside on the lawn, but thanks to our perfectly sized front porch we setup under cover and enjoyed zero mosquitos. Attendees brought their own snacks and drinks, and the YAMs surprised everyone with fresh popcorn and a ‘build your own’ candy bar, complemented by a few sodas and waters for all to share.  Big thanks to our YAM Committee helping organize and execute this fun new event; and thanks as always to club manager, Brian Ankrom, for helping organize and setup!

2018 Snipe Hunt Regatta Cancelled

Jon Deutsch on

One Design Racing

The Snipe Hunt Regatta planned for July 28-29 has been cancelled. The Snipe sailors at FBYC had hoped to welcome what would be 3 member-owned Snipes, plus another Richmond-based Snipe with a half dozen from Annapolis for a low-key weekend of racing in the Southern Chesapeake Bay. For a number of reasons - we're not quite ready to host that event and hope we can try again next year.

Be on the lookout for more Snipes sailing in Fishing Bay later this summer and fall.
