Welcome to the 2017 FBYC Junior Programs!
We are excited about the 2017 Junior sailing season at Fishing Bay Yacht Club, and looking forward to another great year of FUN! No matter your sailor's age, experience, or sailing goals, we have an event to excite them and get them out on the water with their friends. Our philosophy is that if kids have fun sailing with their friends, they will come back for more.
New for 2017 is FBYC’s first 420 Race Team! We are partnering with Christchurch School this summer to create a 420 Race Team that will run parallel with our Opti and Laser Race Teams. If interested, email our Junior Division Commander, Doug Bendura at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will again offer a beginner 420 class during Junior Week, which is separate from the 420 Race Team. Speaking of Junior Week, please email me if you have any interest in volunteering as a coach, or your child over 13 is interested in being a counselor-in-training that week.
