We are past Opening Day and as we all look forward to a great sailing season, there are some changes and events on our schedule to note:
Event Added: FBYC will again offer the Southern Start for the St Mary’s Governor Cup on Friday, July 30th.
Schedule Change: The Delta Dash, Offshore Long-Distance Series #2 will now be held on Saturday July 10th and the One Design Summer Sea Breeze Series #1 is now on Sunday July 11th. Please see event notices for more information on these events. Originally, the Delta Dash was set for an afternoon start on June 26th, concurrent with the Junior Regatta. As we moved into Spring, we projected we would still require greater volunteer support and full utilization of club grounds to ensure distancing and meet check in needs for the Junior Regatta. With expected high participation in these events, along with support boat and RC needs for two events, the Flag, Offshore and Junior Leadership decide to split the two regattas to ensure FBYC was able to deliver a great regatta experience for participants of both events.
Note: Last year’s Junior Regatta was a huge success in large part due to the strong member support. Please check your calendars and volunteer to help with the 2021 Junior Regatta, June 26th and 27th. All levels of experience are welcome. Contact Craig Ciszewski.
Also note: With Delta Dash now on July 10th, the YAM’s have invited the Skippers and Crews to kickback after racing and enjoy the fun at Movie Night.
Sailing Instruction Calendar: The 2021 Instructional Calendar has been updated and is full of great programs developed by FBYC members. These events are excellent opportunities to sharpen your skills no matter what your interest or experience and share time with other sailors enjoying FBYC. The schedule includes:
