2021 Commodore's Ball

What a great way to cap off FBYC's year.

More than 140 members celebrated the close of the "regular" sailing season at the Annual Meeting and Commodore's Ball in Richmond last week.  We announced our new Flag officers and board members, acknowledged our numerous award winners, danced and dined, and simply basked in each other's company.

All the details will be shared in the Log and future emails.  But first, check out your fellow FBYC members enjoying the evening:

Oysters and Racing Were the Bomb at FBYC Closing Day

The wind blew stink all week but that didn't stop our offshore boats from racing or our oysters from tasting sweet.

Well over 175 members slurped and shucked till they were stuffed during our Closing Day Race and Oyster Roast.  Our stellar social chairs, Karen and Gary Akens, and their volunteer crew, served up three types of chili and hotdogs while resident musician Mike Dale entertained us all.  

Folks were spread all over the campus, inside and out, so it felt comfortable being with each other after a two-year "pause."  Also thanks to FBYC's Eric Perkins and member Carl Simon for doing double duty, roasting our catch.

Now on to the Commodore's Ball!
