Our Own March "Madness"

Mark your March Calendar for Fun, Work (just a little), and Learning

We’ve got a fantastic line-up of activities for FBYC members this month.  We hope you’ll take advantage of all your club is offering, including opportunities to volunteer and make FBYC ship shape and Bristol fashion.  Coming up first is:

Saturday, March 5, 2022 10 AM -1 PM  Middle Dock Work Day

Come with your power tools, work gloves and spirit to help install the new electrical/water pedestals on our new middle dock.  This helps save money and is a critical step for getting the dock ready for Opening Day.  We also need helpers and those who can serve lunch.  Sign-up at:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080c4fa5aa2ba4ff2-middle

Saturday, March 19, 2022 1 PM-5 PM Race Committee Training Session in Richmond

Learn from a pro all the ins and outs of being a great race committee crew member.  This session (and a follow-up on-the-water one) are free and open to all.  After all your hard work, head to a local pub for drinks and conversation.  Sign-up at:  https://www.fbyc.net/events/2022/220319-training-race-committee-training/

Saturday, March 26, 2022  It’s a Double-Header!

FBYC Spring Clean-up Day is from 8:30 AM – 1 PM.  Bring your work gloves, rakes and pitchforks and help spruce up the club for the season.  Put in your volunteer hours and sign-up at:  https://www.fbyc.net/events/2022/220319-social-spring-clean-up-2022/

Then stick around for the Deltaville Oyster Roast and Sock Burn beginning at 3:30 PM.  FBYC is helping sponsor this local Deltaville tradition held at Evolution Sail Loft.  There will be oysters, beer and music….and socks to burn!  It’s free to all who sign-up at:  Deltaville Sock Burn and Oyster Roast (constantcontact.com) Tuesday, March 29, 2022 Weather for Sailors Zoom Session

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 Weather for Sailors First Zoom Session

This is the first in a 3-part series of understanding weather from a sailor’s perspective.  The first two sessions are on Zoom, followed by a classroom session at FBYC on Saturday, April 16.  Learn all about it at:  https://www.fbyc.net/events/2022/220329-training-weather-for-sailors-1st-zoom-session/
