2017 Women Only Sailing Weekend - Sept. 23-24

Brian Ankrom on

There is nothing, half as much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.....with a group of women, that is!

 

 

Come and join your fellow FBYC women sailors in our "Second Annual Women Only Sailing Weekend" September 23-24, 2017.  We will hope to call up the same great food, fantastic weather and inspiring companionship that magically came together last fall.  But even if the weather is less than ideal, we still will have a wonderful weekend, sharing stories and learning how to become even more confident women who sail.

 

Right now we have three skippers who can take about eight additional women.  We would LOVE to have another woman or two who is confident behind the wheel to join us as the fleet heads to harbors yet to be determined.  We already have women who are interested so don't hesitate because those bunks (and wine glasses!) will be filled up soon.

 

To reserve a spot, please email Karen Soule at:  karen.soule@gmail.com.  And if you're eager to captain your own vessel,  indicate how many women you can accommodate.

 

Looking forward to a wonderful weekend....with nary a man on board!

Website migration - online registration links changed

Strother Scott on

As a continuing part of the migration from the old website https://www.fbyc.net/ to the new one https://new.fbyc.net/, we have changed the actual links used when you register for an event.  Previously the URL was rather short and ended with a 4 digit number followed by /enter. We have decided not to use event numbers to define events, so we have changed the actual letters in the registration link. For instance when you register for the 78th Annual Regatta the link is https://new.fbyc.net/events/170812-onedesign-78th-annual-one-design-regatta/enter/ and the link to register for the Aug 19 Smith Point Race is https://new.fbyc.net/events/170819-offshore-smith-point-race/enter/.

The final part of each link is the event starting date - YYMMDD - followed by the division name - followed by the event name. Links seen in old emails, or in older news postings will likely still show the 4 digit event number and will be broken. Please visit the website to find the up to date link.

I am very pleased that the migration is going three times faster than I ever thought it would. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Slow conversion to new website

Strother Scott on

We continue to make gradual changes to the website navigation and behavior. This notice is simply to advise you that as you visit our website, you may begin to see unfamiliar looking pages as I have begun movement of pages from the old site https://www.fbyc.net/ to the new one https://new.fbyc.net/.

In the last couple weeks, most links under Club on the blue navigation bar were moved to the new site. For example https://new.fbyc.net/pages/club/ now shows what formerly was seen at https://www.fbyc.net/Club/A/ This week I have copied the content on many other pages linked on the blue nav bar and created pages on the new site. You may run across those pages if you use the blue navigation bar on the new site. Once I get them right, I will change the links on the Zope blue nav bar to send you to the pages on the new site.

I am sure I will have made errors and if you spot an issue, please let me know. More complicated pages that involve the database are not being moved yet.

My goal for this year is to move most member interaction with the website to the new site. When we reach that goal, there will no longer be any need for the average member to log into two websites particularly when it come to registering for events.

Great Adult Sailing Lessons On Board the Club Boats Last Weekend!

Brian Ankrom on

 

Members Dave and Caroline Keys, Bill and Claire Prior, Nancy Harrison, and Dean Smith learned the ropes (and the lines, and the sheets) and are eager to get back behind the tiller whenever they can.  Said Nancy, "I love being able to take out a boat on my own!"

Thanks to CNU graduate and sailing team member Laura Kilgore for teaching the classes...and keeping her cool when the J24 had engine trouble while going into Jackson Creek.  And thanks to Chilcott and her crew for giving them a tow!

The Club boats are easy to reserve and the cost for the entire family is only $100 for an entire season.  Click here to sign up using our registration form

Another Awesome Memorial Day Weekend at FBYC!

Brian Ankrom on

The holiday weekend began on Friday night with a YAM cookout hosed by Jon Deutsch. 

Nearly 40 family members participated in Saturday’s Family Regatta officiated by Blake Kimbrough & family.  The afternoon social included a tug ‘o war & was hosted by Joe Nelson. 

Sunday’s Open House Regatta included over 20 boats & was organized by Jim Raper.  Waddy Garrett marshalled this year’s raft up of 14 boats in rainy weather. 

But the weather held off for more than 200 people who enjoyed a pig pickin’ & music by Jackass Flats at the Open House Party.  Thanks to Geoff & Allene Cahill for hosting!

Open House Regatta | Yacht Entries

Jim Raper on

As of Monday evening, 14 boats are entered...not naming names...but; missing from year's past...a Snipe, a Petrel, a Sakonnet or three, several Flying Scots and FrontRunners, a laser, a certain large blue boat that just arrived on the middle dock, a certain little blue boat whose skipper attempted to poach crew from a red boat on the middle dock, an S2 7.9 or three, a J anything under 35 feet, a beautiful black boat named 'spirit of the air' in Finnish, a C&C, a Saber, and the club has both a J24 and a Flying Scot that both should really be in this event!  This is a fun race with a great on water raft up and party to follow.  We have a great club with great folks who love to sail beautiful boats...I bet we can start and finish 40 boats this coming Sunday...see you all at the skippers' meeting Sunday Morning and afterward at the raft up.
