The current storm track for Hurrican Irene shows it passing just to the east of the Virginia Coast on Sunday.  Although we will likely be spared the worst of it, we are still expecting severe conditions.

Just a reminder that all slip holders should make plans to reinforce all dock links and are responsible for their boats and any damage they cause.  FBYC does not have the resources nor responsibility to look after all of the boats at our docks.  The same is true for any boats in the dry sail lot and small boat parking lot - please secure your boats well ahead of the storm.
