Despite NOAA’s change in the estimated tract of hurricane Florence, winds are predicted to be gusting 25+ knots in the vicinity of Windmill Point and coastal and land flooding risks remain, making traveling to the Club hazardous on Saturday.
THEREFORE RACING ON SATURDAY 9/15 IS cancelled. Due to potential conditions at the Club, this notice will be a substitute for a notice on the FBYC Official Notice Board.

Jere's Legacy Regatta was a wonderful event! There was excellent race course management by the race committee under trying conditions of shifty winds. There were three races and nineteen boats started the first race. The Regatta consisted of three boat divisions; Flying Scots (8), Typhoons (3), Portsmouth Class (8). The weather was perfect for this type of fun racing - and - no protests.
The Regatta social was outstanding. There was an enjoyable continental breakfast before the race. In addition to the racing, the after race awards social was a highlight of the event. There were approximately 70 people in attendance. Event sailors, family, friends of Jere - all to have fun and pay homage ...

The Snipe Hunt Regatta planned for July 28-29 has been cancelled. The Snipe sailors at FBYC had hoped to welcome what would be 3 member-owned Snipes, plus another Richmond-based Snipe with a half dozen from Annapolis for a low-key weekend of racing in the Southern Chesapeake Bay. For a number of reasons - we're not quite ready to host that event and hope we can try again next year.
Be on the lookout for more Snipes sailing in Fishing Bay later this summer and fall.

Look who is making One Design great again! Last month, while competing at the Flying Scot Nationals in Sandusky, Ohio, John Wake sailed as crew for John Aras of Annapolis. They ended the regatta in an astonishing fifth position. Meanwhile, at the same event with 68 boats competing, husband and wife team, Len and Barb Guenther, finished in twelfth spot. Well done team FBYC! It looks like One Design is already great!
On another note, more recently, a number of sailors have been concerned about boats rushing in to the mark roundings at the last second and hacking into boats. This Rushin’ Hacking, as it is called, is of grave concern and threatens the foundation of our program. For ...
