The Fredericton Yacht Club is small, friendly club that services the boaters of Fredericton and the surrounding area. We support our membership and our guests with facilities in Fredericton and Douglas Harbour. We are a social, member operated, club that is perfect for new or experienced boaters.
We service cruisers, racers and day sailors with sailboats and power boats
Due to pending inclement weather forecast for this Saturday we have decided to postpone this weekends work party until next Saturday October 19 starting time of 8:30. Also, could members please keep the areas in front of taps and power outlets along the fence clear of debris. This is a safety hazard!
See you all on the 19th, thank you

FYC Members – Mooring Drop Update:
On Saturday October 5th two up river strings (inside and outside) of moorings were dropped for the winter. Thanks to Deb Shorten and Mike Corbett for their cooperation in moving their boats off the upper string on short notice so two strings could be competed.
Also, a big thanks to the crews
– morning run – Rod MacGregor, Ed Travis, Dennis Lovely,
– afternoon run – John McKinney, Leonard Lee-White, Alec Lee-White and Rod MacGregor.
– 17 moorings were dropped (8 upper outside and 9 upper inside), taking about 10 minutes average per mooring overall. One mooring on the upper outside is condemned but is planned to be repaired by the diver this Friday.
The remaining upper middle string (9) can be dropped anytime. The 3 down river strings must wait for dive/inspection completion, scheduled for this Friday, October 11th.
Next string runs.
This Saturday October 12th a work party(has been postpone to October 19th) is planned for Fredericton float removal and perhaps too for Douglas Harbour winterizing. Come out and help! Many hands make light work.
Since the forecast looks good, we will also like to make two more mooring runs on Saturday. How you can help? Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help this Saturday or later (there are 4 strings left to do before winter). There is usually lots of help in F’ton for the floats work party, so please consider a mooring run on Saturday. We plan two more strings then. We train on the job!
FYC Moorings Goal
My goal is to get crew participation enough so no one has to do more than one mooring run per season. Since we do 6 lift strings and 6 drop strings per season, and 3 per crew per run is optimal, this means we need 36 individuals per year to help out to meet this goal, and do one run per season. A string takes between 1 to 2 hours each. If you do not help, it means someone else will have to do more than one run.
Ask not what FYC can do for you – ask what you can do for FYC!
And remember – a mooring run gets you on the water one more time..
Thanks for your participation.
