Fishing Bay Yacht Club held its Annual Meeting and Awards Party on Saturday, November 17th at the Commonwealth Club in Richmond. The following is a list of all of the trophies and recipients that were awarded at the Commonwealth Club.

This year the awards were started off with a special award for Achievement in International Junior Competition. This award is to recognize an FBYC Junior who not only qualified for Team USA, but finished 5th overall in the 2018 Optimist World Championship in Cypress. This sailor is the first junior from our club to reach this top level of competition and we are glad to recognize Tommy Sitzman with this award.

YAM Holiday Gathering a Jolly Success!

Social Events

This past Saturday approximately thirty members and their guests rallied for Richmond's annual Christmas Parade, followed shortly thereafter by a warm holiday gathering hosted by YAM Committee Members Arch and Katie Durham. Despite a little mist in the air attendance was strong at the parade where children were elated to see the 'Big Guy in Red' welcome them with waving arms and joyous cheer. The gathering afterwards was absolutely wonderful...a beautifully decorated home packed full of tasty holiday treats and seasonal beverages for all to share.  Sincerest thanks to all who came to enjoy the day and especially to our gracious host family, the Durhams!
