FBYC Sailors win 1st Place in A2N ORC4

Paul Wash on

Club News

FBYC sailors take first place in A2N (Annapolis to Newport) ORC 4. The 475 nautical mile race breaks down into three legs, down the Bay, Ches Light to Block Island, and Block Island to Newport finish. The Bay was finicky as usual with everything from light breeze, to no wind, to 15 knots. The crew battled with competitor Integrity, a Navy 44, and were side by side exiting the Bay. At Ches Light the chutes went up and the run to Block Island was on! Fair winds and following seas to Block Island were enjoyed by all!


Supposedly we kept block to our port, but with all the fog we didn’t see land until we were within 100 yards …

Register to hear how they're progressing at:  Look under the "Social" tab (we're sure this has been only great and relaxing fun!) to sign-up.

FBYC Junior Regatta/Virginia Commonwealth's Cup June 26, 27th

I am completely amazed how rich the "Corinthian spirit" has been at our club and how many members are volunteering for our upcoming two day regatta.  After a year of being bound by a computer our kids finally have the opportunity to be on the water again to represent our amazing sailing program and club.  We are hosting the Virginia State Championship which is also the season opener for CBYRA.  With registration open for about a month we have been successfully amassing an army of volunteers to serve over 100 sailors along with their family and friends.  As far as the eye can see will be an armada of kids geared and ready to give it their all June 26-27th …
