FBYC in conjunction with Deltaville Boatyard, Deltaville Marina, Deltaville Maritime Museum, The Harbor House and Jackson Creek Condo association will host USODA Nationals July 17-25th. USODA notified FBYC Friday October 16th that their application and proposal has been accepted. With help from key members from the Deltaville Community FBYC submitted a detailed proposal that has been enthusiastically accepted by the community, the FBYC Board, USODA, and over 60 volunteers!

Deltaville Maritime Museum will host all land based activities for the event to include: main event tent, food offerings, retail opportunities and parking. The adjacent Deltaville Boatyard and Marina is where 330 plus Optimist sailors will rig and launch. The Jackson Creek Condo Association allows participants to cross from the Museum to the Boat Yard. Small support boats such as safety and coach will be launched at Harbor House. Local restaurants and retailers will be contacted and encouraged to participate in this eight day event.

Co-Chairing the event will be veteran Noel Clinard and Jay Buhl. A regatta committee is in the works and volunteers are lining up.

This is a great opportunity for FBYC, the Deltaville community and Middlesex county!
