More than 150 members celebrated FBYC's Opening Day events.  What did we do?  We raced 'round the marks; heard the bagpipes call;  gathered to bless the fleet; enjoyed great live music; tasted local wines and ate Italian dishes.  More than anything else, we rekindled long-term friendships and traded tales of "boat ownership woes" and plans for the next cruise.  

Perhaps this weekend story embodies FBYC the most:  

A sailor from Colorado was living on his boat, on the hard in Deltaville, waiting to launch.  Our chaplain, Doug Anderson, recognized a kindred spirit and invited him to both the Friday night cruising dinner and to our big Opening Day celebration.  Everyone embraced him with open arms. Said our new friend, Rick …

There are so many new and exciting developments for this year's Opening Day, we can't keep track of them all.  For starters, every one who registers for the dinner by THIS MONDAY will receive their own reusable plastic GoVino wine or pilsner glass.  What better way to toast the beginning of the sailing season, not to mention cutting down on waste.

Along with some great dinner choices--lasagna or eggplant parm--we are introducing the "Up Bar." Just as it sounds, the Up Bar on the second floor of the clubhouse will be offering Italian wine tastings by Artisen Cellars and "sophisticated hors d'oeuvres."  Of course, wine, beer and dark 'n stormies will still be available at Rick's.
