Club News

This past Saturday, FBYC hosted an all day (literally) seminar for those wanting to keep up with the new rule changes, to recertify as a club race officer, or to become certified as a new club race officer.  The seminar was well attended with folks from NYCC, HYC, RRYC, Kingsmill, and FBYC.  Of the 27 registered, 15 were from FBYC...that's impressive.  We were instructed by the team of John McCarthey (supervised by Lin McCarthey) and Jerry Thompson pictured below.  It's great to be part of a racing program that values and supports, informed and efficient race officers.  Thank you to all that participated - 2017 is going to be a great year.

Clubhouse News

There are still a few spots left for the seminar.  It is an all day class, taught upstairs in the main clubhouse, that enables your certification as a club race officer, if that's your goal.  Certainly, it exposes you to all that the Race Committee delivers on race day, whether you are a competitor or member of the race committee.

The course is open for registration until Sunday, January 15th.  Breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks and all course materials are provided with your entry fee.
