Members, please note:

Whilst you are on Club premises, please adhere to all Covid protocols. The wearing of masks is COMPULSORY.



Important notice to Members:

Our financial year-end is 30th June and subscriptions for the coming year are due in July.

The General Committee would like to thank members for their ongoing support at the Club over the past year. Although Covid-19 has impacted everyone in the country and it has certainly not been easy for many of us, we are happy to tell you that the club has survived and continues to operate on a sound footing.

Renewal of Subscriptions:

Member Subscription invoices for the year to 30 June 2022 will be sent out on 1st July 2021 and are due by 1st August 2021.

Due to the hardships experienced by many members, the subscriptions were not increased last year. However, due to inflation on the costs of running the club, it is necessary that the coming year’s subscriptions be increased by 5% in order to cover this increase in the club's expenses. The affiliation fees to SAS and WPDSA have also increased marginally and will be reflected on your invoice accordingly.

A small discount will be granted to all members paying by 31st July.
Members may, by arrangement with the club, request for payment terms to pay by 30th September.


Kindly note that in terms of the Clubs Constitution, should you not wish to renew your membership, you are obliged to advise the Club (Yvonne admin@fbyc.co.za) before the end of June, otherwise billing will automatically take place and will become due and payable. Any resignations received after that date will incur pro-rata subscription fees up to the date of resignation.

Please stay safe, we will see you around the Club!

Despite the yachties being keen to race, the Winter Twilight Sailing Series, unfortunately, didn’t get off to a flying start on Wednesday. What little wind was forecast didn’t materialise and the race had to be called off. Many thanks to Hedley Prince for manning the bridge.
The Fun Sailing scheduled for the weekend materialised on Sunday when the wind came through nicely and quite a few sails could be seen out in the bay.


Wednesday 16 June is Youth Day

To celebrate our youth our Wednesday Twilight race will have a ‘younger’ twist.

Please keep an eye on the FBYC Racing Sailors WhatsApp group for details.
