End of Season Social and Awards Ceremony


 Tuesday, December 6 at 7:00p.m. for the FYC End of Season Social and Awards Ceremony. This event, which is open to all members (racers and otherwise) will be held at Grimross Taproom and Craft Brewery on Bishop Drive.

After a great sailing season, we are now hunkered down for a long winter of longing again for sailing. This is a great opportunity to get together with your fellow sailors and reminisce about the year past and discuss projects for the upcoming season. In addition this will be the Awards Ceremony for the Racing Season.

Beer may be purchased at the bar. Light snacks will be provided.

Hope to see you on December 6.
