We have continued to offer a high level of service to our membership, which comes at increased costs. Your board is doing everything possible to manage our expenses in a prudent manner. Additionally, we are planning on several capital improvements including the new floating dock and facility maintenance work this year that requires significant cash outlays, and we are tightly adhering to our planned budget for the spending.
Our biggest challenge is increasing revenues to keep pace with the ever increasing level of expenses. The biggest thing you the ...
Following up on a previous notice where we announced the prohibition of the use of space heaters aboard boats at the club, a committee has been formed to re-examine this issue and the board will be reviewing their recommendation at the next board meeting in February. If a “safe” heater standard is approved, all slip holders we receive an addendum to their lease which will need to be signed and returned to the club.
Please realize we are trying to address a potential safety concern at our docks.
As always please feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Holiday season so far and are looking forward to the new year!

According to a recent article in the Southside Sentinal, authored by Tom Chillemi, "the Middlesex Water Authority (MWA) voted on July 31 to accept a $3 million grant and a 2% interest rate loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The funding moves the $18 million Eastern Middlesex Water Project forward with the plan to pipe water from Rosegill near Urbanna to Topping and as far east as Stingray Point in Deltaville.
The MWA is an “authority” and is separate from the Middlesex government, and as an authority the customers would pay for the water system. The MWA will have 517 water customers, which is enough to pass scrutiny of the USDA’s regional office.
There are still a few spots left for the seminar. It is an all day class, taught upstairs in the main clubhouse, that enables your certification as a club race officer, if that's your goal. Certainly, it exposes you to all that the Race Committee delivers on race day, whether you are a competitor or member of the race committee.
The course is open for registration until Sunday, January 15th. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks and all course materials are provided with your entry fee.
Due to a lifeguard shortage, we are asking FBYC parents not to count on pool lifeguards being in attendance the next 2 weekends/weeks - which includes the Labor Day Weekend. We expect parents, or responsible adults, to monitor pool activities and maintain a safe environment for the children and no children to be left unattended.
