Fishing Bay Yacht Club in Deltaville, Virginia will be hosting the regatta on May 14-15 and has a fantastic program lined up. FBYC is famous for it’s Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters regatta each fall. For those who haven’t reached masters vintage, this is a great opportunity to sail at a beautiful club with a great sailing location on the mouth of the Piankatank Regatta. FBYC has beach launching, plenty of room to rig, and space to tent camp. Or if you are not up for camping, there’s a couple motels and some nice B&B’s a short distance from the club.
