Gene Roberts, a long time FBYC member and Mobjack one-design sailor, died on Wednesday, August 1, of a massive stroke. His service is scheduled for 11AM on Saturday, August 11, in Deltaville at the "Zoar Church Beach Property". It is located off Route 33 East just past Stingray Harbor Marina, facing the Rappahannock River.Zoar Church uses this beach for interdenominational services every Sunday morning at 8:30AM. We understand most people who attend services there bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on.

The service is the same day as our Annual Regatta. The skipper's meeting for the annual regatta is scheduled for 10:30AM on Saturday with racing to begin at 11:30AM. We will continue with our regular regatta schedule, except we will offer a prayer and a moment of silence for Gene and his family at the skipper's meeting and we will conclude the skipper's meeting to allow time for friends who wish to attend the service (which is about 5 miles away) to be there by 11AM.
