Offshore Junior Sailing Day, Sun, July 1

Stuart Burnett on Tuesday June 26, 2001 04:21PM

With Junior Week and the Volvo Leukemia Cup over, it's time to plan for our Junior Offshore Sailing Day on July 1. This is an opportunity to support our Junior Program and build interest in offshore sailing with our younger club members.The focus of the day will be to add some FBYC junior sailors to your normal crew and give then a taste of sailing on BIG boats. Cruisers who are not participating in the July 4th cruise are invited to take like-minded juniors for a day sail while our offshore racing fleet will conduct a series of fun races with the juniors who are interested in racing on big boats.

A "Skipper & Crew Meeting" will be held at 1000 for all interested parties. Whether you have a crew or boat lined up, come on out and we'll find you junior crews or offshore boats at that time. For the racing fleet, we'll also be assigning rating credits depending on the number and experience of the junior crews taken on board. The first race won't begin until 1:00 PM, so you'll have some time to take your crew out and try a few maneuvers before the start. For the sailing instructions for this event, see

Following the sailing, we'll have a cookout for all involved.
