Opti and Laser Development Teams

Posted by Mark E. Hayes on

Walker Angus-First Place Opti Overall at Indian Creek Yacht & Country Club Annual Jr. Regatta

Opti and Laser Development Teams Bring Home the Hardware!

This past weekend, July 23rd through the 26th, was a rocking great time for the Opti and Laser Development Teams! It began Thursday with the teams practicing at the club, and then loading the coach boats and sailboats for the weekend’s first regatta, Indian Creek Yacht & Country Club’s Annual Junior Regatta, on Friday, in Kilmarnock.

The teams left early Friday morning, and as usual, the kids had plenty of nervous butterflies! But our coaches did a wonderful job smoothing out the usual problems and pumping up the sailors. Our kids did great! ODT member Walker Angus won first place in Optis, with his cousin Bo Angus in fifth, and sister Mae Wallace Angus in tenth! There were no fleet divisions at this regatta. In Laser Radials, we fielded a mixed team of members from the Opti and Laser Race Teams who are transitioning to Lasers from Optis, as well as our regular Laser Development Team. Gannon Troutman took first place, Jackson Montague was second, Nicolas Cabell was third, and his brother, Jack Cabell was fourth. We also had three Green Fleet racers, John Thomas Mason, Alexander Moor and William Shaner. It was a clean sweep for FBYC!

2015 Laser Summer Regatta Results

Posted by William F. Murphy on


The mouth of the Piankatank River was the scene of the second regatta of the four event Laser series on Sunday 26 July.  A strong turnout of 10 racers tackled the tactically challenging light to moderate breeze. Once again,  Mark Stephens and his team did an excellent job of adapting to the wind variations throughout the afternoon and was able to complete five races in a little over three hours. Jon Deutsch had a very strong and consistent performance and won the regatta and is the series leader. Full results are posted on  Next up for the Lasers is the 76th edition of the Annual One Design Regatta 8-9 August.  Register now and encourage others to do the same!

Last Sunday a great article about our own Gannon Troutman, his exploits on the J-70 circuit, and FBYC, appeared on the front page of the Middle Peninsula Daily Press! It is a fascinating story and great publicity for our club. Here is a link to the article, but you must have a subscription to the paper to view it:

Way to go Gannon!

Each participating boat will be asked to bring a side dish. Soft drinks, juice, wine and beer will be provided.

On Sat., lunch will be on your own.  We will raft up for an early dinner of BBQ provided by us; we will provide the same variety of beverages as for Friday. Each boat will be asked to bring a side dish to complement the BBQ.  Just let us know what dish you choose.We are looking for lots of grandchildren as well as children to come.Please sign up online or directly with us as below.

Benton Amthor receiving the Commonwealth of Virginia Trophy for the second year in a row, and third year in a row for FBYC!

With the end of Junior Week, 49 kids on the FBYC junior race teams began the most intense period of sailing-and racing-many will experience in their entire lives.  In 19 days the teams raced in 7 regattas!

The first regatta was FBYC’s own Junior Olympics, immediately following Junior Week on June 27 & 28. The Opti and Laser Development Teams, and the Opti and Laser Race Teams, all competed. Our kids dominated against teams from AYC, SSA, Tred Avon, Hampton, around the bay and North Carolina. In the Opti division, our own Nathan Smith won Overall, and the next four spots were claimed by teammates Benton Amthor, Boyd Bragg, Ian Street and Guthrie Braun! In the Laser Radial, Luke Hayes was 6th, followed by Jed Londrey and Garret Levy.

Not including today, the teams have raced in seven regattas in the last three weeks, placing first in five! Look for a Junior Newsletter later this week with a full update.


Leukemia Cup Rocks at the Deltaville Maritime Museum

Posted by Joseph L. Dennison on

The 17th Annual Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta held in Deltaville over the weekend of July 10-12 was another huge success with 61 registered yachts and enthusiastic crowds at the Auction and Gala held for the second consecutive year at the Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park.

Typically the Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta is one of the most successful Leukemia Cup Regattas in the country in spite of being one of the smallest of such national venues, and this year should prove to be no exception. Having four times been voted the Best Regatta on the Bay by the readers of Chesapeake Bay Magazine, the 2015 Regatta is expected to be a strong contender for this honor again this year.
