We ended our sailing season as it began.  On Zoom.

But there was plenty of cruising, racing and welcome fellowship in between.  This past Saturday, FBYC held its Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation. We welcomed our new Flag Officers and other members of the board who will help us navigate 2021, we hope NOT on Zoom, but in person.  In addition, our annual awards were presented to those members who have excelled on the racing circuit, supported our cruising and junior divisions and arranged for numerous safe and socially-distant events.

Hear a recap of the year, learn about our future plans and recognize all those who worked so hard to move FBYC forward in 2020.

Sunday was the final day of the Laser Series and the the final event of the One Design schedule for 2020 and it was a perfectly light day to end on. The forecast all day was for nothing and it was delivering. Those who sailed Saturday had the same forecast and knew the wind came in around 1 and so we waited. Sure enough an easterly breeze of 4-7 came in and we were able to sail 5 races with 9 boats right up in Fishing Bay just off the docks.


Mike Toms had a great first race – getting a lead and not letting it go. In the 2nd race James Jacob lead the fleet around the course while …
