47 Lasers will take to the waters of Fishing Bay this weekend in what will be the 40th annual Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters.  We’re also very excited to honor a few sailors who participated in the inaugural regatta as specials guests at dinner thanks to Alain Vincey, Laser sailor and chef extraordinaire who started the event back in 1981 and has brought this group back together.

It takes a lot to run these regattas and a huge thank you to everyone who has helped over the past 4 decades. This event is special not just for the Laser fleet members at FBYC, but also the guests who come from up and down the east coast, year after year …

Sunday started breezy and sunny for the 8-boat fleet at FBYC’s ILCA Fall Regatta being sailed alongside a 4-boat  Flying Scot Fleet. The ½ mile course was set on the south end of Area A just north of the channel with the wind out of the North. David Waiting (SSA) won the first 3 of 5 races to win the day overall. James Jacob (SSA) was two points behind with Jon Deutsch (FBYC) in 3rd another two points behind him.

In the early races the wind was up in the mid-teens, 2 boats retired early and the rest of the boats did well to sail left and pick up the shifts and pressure coming from up the Piankatank …

USSS-2021 . Annapolis boat show

After a two-year hiatus, the Chesapeake's "Fall Rite of Passage" is back on and you're invited!

We've all struggled how to live, sail and stay healthy during this time of Covid.  And there's no better way to keep our "heads-out-of-the-boat" than to visit the Annapolis Boat show next month.  Numerous members have expressed interest in driving up together on FRIDAY,  OCTOBER 15 for a one-day, up and back excursion.

We'll be leaving from the Barnes and Noble Bookstore, 9850 Brook Rd, Glen Allen, VA at 7 AM SHARP and returning to Richmond, planning to arrive back around 10 PM.

Anyone wishing to either join the car caravan or car pool can meet up with others in the store's parking lot …
