West Dock Electrical & Water Restricted for System Repairs

Clubhouse News

Our water production plant is currently offline for emergency repairs.

Water has been shut off to the Jackson Creek Docks, Dry Sail Lot, One-Design Lot, Junior Field, & Fishing Bay Ramp until further notice in order to conserve the limited water we have in the tank.  I anticipate the water to be restored by July 27th.

We are also having power problems on the West Dock.  The dock is not receiving adequate power from the transformer.  I have contacted the utility company & will provide an update when I have more information.

This event is held to honor Jere Dennison who served in FBYC leadership roles for over 40 years. While his achievements with the Club are too numerous to mention, he was the Club's youngest Commodore, created the Club's comprehensive Austin Memorial Library, and was Club Historian for over 15 years. Jere was an avid one-design sailor who completely understood that sailing is a lifelong adventure - an ancient legacy to be passed on from generation to generation!

Rives Potts has done very well in many races, and continues to make a name for himself with his crew of family and friends on “Carina.” Glenn Doncaster has had success in this race before, and continued his run with his FBYC crew on “Nanuq,’ including Rebecca Doncaster, Paul Wash, Jerry Latell, and former member Alex Otoole. Here is a quick summary of the conditions of the race courtesy of Jerry Latell:
