We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Leap Day than holding this year's Winter Program in Deltaville on Saturday, February 29 from 2-4 pm at the FBYC Clubhouse.   And there's no better person to start us off than the legendary boat builder Jim Brown of Tidewater, VA.    Jim has been one of the world's leading multi-hull designers for over six decades.  He's an accomplished teacher and author and member of the Cruising World's Hall of Fame.  Along with his wife and children, Jim has traveled to numerous continents aboard his own designs, creating--and telling--a multitude of seafaring stories.

Can we burn a few socks and drink some Dark 'n Stormies at your home?

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.  

We've got the date--Saturday, March 14 2020--but need a "host home."  All you need to do is open your door to some happy sailors and we'll do all the rest:  Set-up, Food and Drinks, Music and Clean-up.

Can you either offer your home as a location or help with the party details?

Please drop Jerry Latell, our Winter Program Chair, an email at …

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.


Looking ahead we can look forward to some new initiatives designed to develop our sailing skills and attract new members:

  • A new "Learn to Cruise" seminar to better equip those who want to explore both near and far
  • A "Safety at Sea Day" where we can practice lighting old flares (and get rid of expired ones)

But keep a sharp lookout for our established and successful programs:
