SAILING NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS

Easter Regatta – In the spirit of tradition, competitors donated Easter eggs to the disadvantaged. This year saw an overwhelming donation that was given to the Open-Door Social Work Community, see photo below. A massive thank you to all and to Terry Spreeth for facilitating the distribution.
Treasure Hunt – Although we only had seven boats enter, Three Sailing, Two Power and Two Rowing, fun was had by all. Boats walked away with a great bounty of treasure and have indicated that they will definitely be back for the next one.
Double Cape Race – This iconic race will take place over the weekend of 4th and 5th May. The NOR, SI and other information is available on the RCYC website. Entries closed on 26th April @ 17h00 but I’m sure that they will accept late entries. The race starts AT 10h00 in Cape Town and Simon’s Town simultaneously. FBYC has three entries, Bonia, Cape Flyer, and Serendipity. We wish them all the very best for the race. The race can be tracked on Track Track.
FBYC Club Championships
We will be having our Club Championships over 11th & 12th of May.
Lipton Cup Challenge – To all interested parties, FBYC are inviting entries to represent FBYC in Cape Town for this prestigious regatta.

Anyone interested must apply to the Sailing Office by 15 May.
Clipper Race – Ryan Gibson on Dare To Lead continues to do very well overall but has dropped to joint third place with Zhuhai on 87 points, 2nd is Ha Long Bay Viet Nam on 93 points and 1st Perseverance on 98 points. With four races to go it’s still anyone’s race. Our FBYC members continue to follow and support him.
You can follow the race at www.clipperroundtheworld.com.

Moorings for racing boats 26’ or less


FBYC together with STMC have re-introduced cheaper moorings that will be available to boats that take part in Club Races. These mooring are very limited and will only be given out with certain T’s & C’s. You can come to the Sailing Office to find out more.

You can simply add this donation to your bill of food and drinks at the bar or restaurant.
