2018 Family Flying Scot Sailing

My sister and her husband Dean were in town for the week and so I took them, my parents and Jess to FBYC and we rented the club’s Flying Scot to go sailing for a couple hours.  It was hot when we arrived and still barely any breeze.  We jumped in the pool and off the dock into the river to cool off.  By mid-afternoon the sea breeze started filling in and so we rigged and headed out.

We had a nice sail around Stove Point in the Piankatank River. Back at shore we went for another swim, ate snacks on the waterfront, cleaned up and then went to Merroir for dinner.

2016 FBYC One Design Fall Series #1

The first of the one design fall series I borrowed a Front Runner and took my friend Patrick Conroy for his first sail on a Front Runner.  Save one race we weren’t much of a match for the other very experienced Front Runner sailors, but we had fun and Patrick even got to drive the last race.

After racing we were joined by Jen and Patrick’s wife Lauren for dinner at Merroir.
