Our Annual Bermuda High Party is the perfect way to cast off winter and plan for the 2020 sailing season.  It is traditionally held in the Richmond area where we rekindle friendships and introduce potential new members to FBYC.

Happy New Year to all our members, Deltaville friends and Chesapeake sailors everywhere.  While we all take stock of 2019 and plan ahead for this new year, we remain grateful for our relationships forged under sail and for the exquisite bit of beauty we call Fishing Bay Yacht Club.
