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 …

The weather was lousy, but the oysters, food and physically distant fellowship was outstanding!  FBYC's Annual Oyster roast was a great success last Sunday with more than 100 members and guests participating in our Oyster Tailgate.  All wore foulies which we stripped off and tossed into warm cars once we had our fill of roasted and raw oysters.  Thanks to Social Chairwoman Carrie Russel and her crew for pulling off a memorable event.
