We’ve got a motor coach reserved to take a happy, eager group of FBYC sailors to the Annapolis Boat Show’s VIP Day on Thursday, October 4, 2018. BUT with all the scurrying about and preparing for Florence, not many folks have signed-up to ride the bus.
The last day to reserve your seat is this Saturday, September 22 at noon.
Light breeze may have truncated the number of races in our Stingray Point Regatta; however, the conditions could not have been more ripe for a front lawn cornhole tournament this past Sunday. Members, guests and teams of all ages from traveling yacht clubs showed up in droves to register their teams and get into the the action...all in all we had a full bracket of 16 teams and a tremendous group of onlooking spectators.
As we worked through the bracket in single-elimination fashion down to our final four, eventually the island mood-setting reggae tunes turned to amateur comedic commentary over the PA-system...it felt a little like watching Wimbledon play-by-play analysis performed by Will Farrell and Jimmy Fallon wannabes ...
The Annapolis Boat Show is the sailing world’s best land-based, gunk-hole gathering. Where else can you talk to experts about everything sailing, buy anything sailing related at discount prices, and most importantly, step aboard a gazillion number of boats....and either see your dream boat or decide you still like your own boat best?
Come along with your fellow members and friends as we travel to the show’s VIP Day, Thursday, October 4, 2018 by coach bus. We’ll leave Richmond at 7 am with coffee and bagels on board and arrive in Annapolis in time for the show’s opening at 10 am. You’ll have the entire day to explore, shop and simply soak up everything ...

Grab the picnic blankets and family for a fun outdoor movie night at the club! Members and their guests of all ages are invited to this free YAM-sponsored event...
The movie this Friday will be PRINCESS BRIDE as chosen by members via online voting... please bring something to eat & drink...something to share as well if you feel up to it...the fun starts at 7:45pm, see you there!
YAM's first ever Movie Night drew a huge crowd with over 40 members! "The Sandlot" cranked up at 8:45pm and we saw members of all ages joining in the fun...
Wet weather precluded us from being outside on the lawn, but thanks to our perfectly sized front porch we setup under cover and enjoyed zero mosquitos. Attendees brought their own snacks and drinks, and the YAMs surprised everyone with fresh popcorn and a ‘build your own’ candy bar, complemented by a few sodas and waters for all to share. Big thanks to our YAM Committee helping organize and execute this fun new event; and thanks as always to club manager, Brian Ankrom, for helping organize and setup!
Come join us for an exciting day at the Annapolis Sailboat Show, Thursday, October 4, 2018. We will travel by bus, leaving Richmond at 7 am and return that same day at approximately 9 pm. This is the show's VIP day when crowds are smaller--the best day to go!
