About Website


For over 15 years, Fishing Bay Yacht Club’s web site has helped promote the Club, manage our events, and attract new members and participants in our events.  Last year Paul Wash built a IOS Mobile App for iPhones and iPads that has all event information, results and the member database.

2016-2017 Changes - two websites in operation - We continue to convert from

  • our old Zope website https://www.fbyc.net/ (used for Home Page, all event pages, and many webpages) to
  • our new Django website https://new.fbyc.net/  (used mostly for posting news, editing pages, and, new in 2016 all account creation and editing and the resetting of passwords) and
  • NEW IN 2017 - event registration has moved to  https://new.fbyc.net/  Registration links on the old site will switch registrants over to the new site, requiring you to log into the new site to regsiter.  The payment processing has also been changed to Stripe. 

Both sites require usernames and passwords for full access to the features. 

Home page - at www.fbyc.net -The top of the page varies with the season, but usually displays links to recent results and pictures. The left sidebar automatically lists the next 15 events with links to event pages, on-line registration, and lists of those previously registered.  The right sidebar lists featured events.  The middle of the page shows our News feed - latest news on top.

News also can be seen at the News Home Page https://new.fbyc.net.  Members can post news articles only after they login to the “new” site. Help on Posting https://new.fbyc.net/help/post/ describes how to post news.

Usernames, Passwords & Permissions - All members should have Usernames and Passwords, which enable them to register for events and use both sites.  This protects the identity of our members, allows us to offer our member database on-line (address and phone book and yacht register).  Both sites have the same credentials, if you change credentials, they change for both sites. We also offer Usernames to non-members for event registration. Both sites have links that send you to the account creation page https://new.fbyc.net/accounts/signup/ and the resetting of passwords page https://new.fbyc.net/password_reset/.

Navigation – The red navbar of www.fbyc.net has your login info at the top left, and members-only related links, which appear based on your permissions, at the top right.  Board Members, Events Managers, Web Editors, will have additional links on the top right navbar.  The main navigation links, on the blue navbar, are visible to all. Most links have a “mouseover” feature, meaning if you hold your mouse over the link, sublinks are shown, and you can go straight to that sublink. Most web pages have a left sidebar, showing links to all the subsections.

Email lists – We have two primary email systems.  A.) Clubwide and mass emails are sent to our mailing lists and you can manage your subscriptions at https://www.fbyc.net/Club/EmailNews.  We make it easy for everybody to keep up with Club News by sending the prior week’s web news postings on Wednesday mornings.  B.) In 2015 we converted all of member-managed email lists to "Google Apps for Work" with email addresses at the @fbyc.net domain. Those with Gmail will find the lists under their Google Groups. See https://www.fbyc.net/Access/Members/Mail for information about our mailing lists and how to join or unsubscribe.

On-line Event Registration is available to Members and non-members for almost all events using our custom on-line registration system. It keeps track of entries and head counts and securely collects payments for those events with fees or items sold.
