"Don't worry, the water only looks cold!"

BYC frostbiting offers competitive one-design sailing to all ages. You will also find a very supportive fleet membership to help you improve your skills in dinghy sailing. Come join this enthusiastic fleet of year-round Laser and Aero racers. Racing is just off our pier using a uniquely designed “race shack” built for frostbiting.  Visitors are always welcome for racing and fellowship after.
