On October 6th, Meg Rock resigned as Executive Secretary. Meg interacted with many of you during her four year tenure. She was organized, professional, and always a joy to work with. She kept the Board on track and organized, and she dedicated herself to FBYC right up to her last weeks.
On October 14th she succumbed to cancer following nearly a decade long battle. The large contingent of FBYC members who attended her funeral on October 20th was a testament and tribute to Meg’s contributions and an indication of just how much we will miss her.
Shortly after announcing her resignation, Meg helped us to hire her replacement. The hiring committee selected Donna Mason to serve ...

It was great weekend all around at the 36th Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship where 44 sailors had 7 races over two days in a variety of conditions and Rob Hallawell from Milford Connecticut won the championship. Sailors from as far away as Toronto and Miami began arriving at Fishing Bay Yacht Club in Deltaville Virginia mid afternoon Friday as the weather began to turn and cloud up with some misty rain. That didn’t deter some hearty sailors from going for a practice sail.
High tides on Friday night and Saturday made driving down Fishing Bay Road more of an aquatic adventure and cars queued up at the hose stations for wash downs much like sailboats do after racing ...
