Message from FYC’s Race Committee:
FYC’s Flowers’ Cove scheduled for this weekend (August 11th and 12th) will not be held in its usual two day/overnight format.
Instead, we’re going to try a new race format. On Saturday, August 11, 2018 FYC will be holding its inaugural “Endurance Race.” It’s going to be an extended/lengthened one day (afternoon) race around Grand Lake. The race course will be selected based on wind and weather conditions, but we’re hoping to race at least 10 nautical miles.
As usual, the Skipper’s meeting will be held on the Douglas Harbour Wharf at 1200h, with the first start time likely around 1315h. All are welcome, so come give our new race a try!
Hope you are staying warm and dry while you wade through this snow. (Those of you who are hot and dry in sunny climes, carry on enjoying your wonderful weather.)
We are having a pub night at Wilser’s Room on Friday, February 24th, at 6:30. Please bring something to nibble on while we enjoy soft drinks, wine, beer or spirits that Wilser’s Room has to offer.
Address: 362 Queen St, Fredericton, NB E3B, Canada
Hope to see you there!
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.
