Eighty--yes that is 8-0 lovers of sailing joined online for FBYC's 31st Crew Training Seminar!
Our virtual online webinar attracted people from numerous states and from all over the commonwealth of Virginia. Everyone was eager to simply gather together to learn about our club, our racing and cruising programs and more.
Kudos to George Burke who began the 90-minute session with his entry-level and often humorous presentation, "What's that called?" (Did you know that halyard is derived from "haul on the yard?") A self-described technology neophyte, George navigated the webinar with style and skill.
Special thanks to Lauren DeSimone and Stuart Kegan for transitioning our training from in-person to online and for Paul Wash for his technical prowess.
Tune in next week--and every Tuesday evening in May--for our upcoming sessions with Bob Fleck, skipper extraordinaire of S/V Mad Hatter and Jerry Latell, owner of Deltaville's own Evolution Sails. They'll be sharing the details of their racing success with everyone.
