FBYC Fall Race 4 -151.jpg


Rain or shine, life's better outside. Fishing Bay Yacht Club (FBYC) invites you to come sailing with us.


FBYC is again offering our popular annual sailing course for anyone interested in a team sport that will challenge the most competitive and give a lifetime of enjoyment to anyone who loves outdoor sports and good fun.

The course consists of three classroom sessions and two optional on-the-water practice sessions in Deltaville (one hour east of Richmond) aboard racing sailboats. Classroom instruction is provided by FBYC racing skippers and crew with experience in local, national, and international racing, and is supplemented by demonstrations and hands-on practice on FBYC racing boats. All participants receive course handbooks that complement the classroom sessions and include FBYC's 2019 racing schedule.

The program will begin April 2, 2019 in the classroom in Richmond and carry through to on-the-water practice sessions later in the spring. Please visit the Event page for the First Session where you can register for all the classes in one step.
