Junior Sailing Opportunities

Posted by Mark E. Hayes on

OPTI KIDS AND JUNIOR WEEK ARE FULL AND REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

But there are many exciting FBYC programs that will keep your junior on the water and sailing all season, no matter their experience:

Private Lessons: Available all summer by appointment. We will design a curriculum to fit your sailor, from beginner to advanced, on Optis, Lasers or 420s. Private Lessons are a great follow-up to Opti Kids and Junior Week; and are a great option for kids who missed these programs.

August OptiWeek: August 10th-13th. Open to beginners and taught by our coaching staff.

Fun Sail: July 11th. The name says it all! Join us for a day of playing on the water and pizza by the pool. The activities will be led by an experienced instructor.

Opti and Laser Development Teams: Thursdays through Sundays, weekly, from June 26th through August 15th. Beginning race instruction taught by our coaching staff.

Summer Regattas: Junior Olympics on June 27th and 28th; and the AOD on August 8th and 9th.

Spring, Summer and Fall Race Teams: For the experienced racer.

For additional information on all of these programs and to register, please visit:

Rules Top The List Of Importance In Our Racing

Posted by John C. Beery on

I noticed this Saturday morning that the sign-up list for Rob Overton's Winter Program on Rules (Wed. eve, March 25) is woefully lacking in participation.  This post is to encourage everyone who has yet to sign-up to do so.

Anyone who thinks they have complete command of the rules is simply wrong.  I've been a student of the rules for 35 years and I find myself continually amazed at what I don't know.  A seminar, such as what is planned for Wednesday from one of our sport's leading experts, is a wonderful opportunity to increase your knowledge of this perplexing subject.  I hope to see everyone there.

 

New Beginner Opti Class!

Posted by Mark E. Hayes on

HOW COULD WE SAY NO TO A BEGINNING SAILOR?
Both classes of Opti Kids and all three classes of Beginner Opti during Junior Week are at full capacity and closed to additional registration; but we couldn’t bring ourselves to just say NO and disappoint all those kids we've had to turn away! FBYC has opened an additional Beginner Opti session to be held August 10th through 13th, and will be called August OptiWeek.

Space is limited.

Visit our website for all the details and to register: https://www.fbyc.net/Juniors/AugustOptiWeek

Note: Other Junior Week classes remain open at this time, but are expected to reach capacity shortly. Only Beginner Opti will be offered during August OptiWeek.

Looking For A Few Good Gardeners!

Posted by Ed O'Connor on

The Grounds Committee is looking for a few volunteers to form an ad hoc committee to evaluate and improve the beauty of our campus.

This committee will identify old flower bed locations, identify new locations, provide recommendations for new shrubbery, provide design recommendations for various unimproved spaces, etc.

We have a modest budget to work with and willing hands to acquire, move and plant products.

If you’re interested and can provide time and expertise, let’s meet at noon on saturday, march 28th at the main clubhouse to walk and inspect our campus, develop plans and set this effort in motion.

Contact Ed O’Connor at: ed.oconnor@verizon.net  or 804-338-1142
