Letter from the Commodore

Posted 1/1/2019
Dear Lake Ontario Sailors,
Happy New Year!
I write this letter to introduce Fifty Point Sailing Club (FPSC) to you and your fellow sailors. FPSC adds a racing program back to Fifty Point Marina Basin.
A brief history of FPSC, formally HBCN, or more recently Newport Yacht Club Stoney Creek (NYC-SC): Our racing program has moved back to the Fifty Point Marina basin from the Newport Marina. Our racing program has been shared between the two basins for years, with boats from both Marinas participating in our Tuesday night racing programs as well in our regattas. Now with the majority of the boats involved in our racing program recently re-locating into the Fifty Point Marina, and with fewer boats still located at NYC-SC, it was time to bring the program back to Fifty Point Marina.
All of our racers are the same, as well as our Regattas. We feel the number of boats in the Fifty Point Basin gives our new charter FPSC a great opportunity to grow in numbers of racing boats. We are looking forward to growing FPSC and continuing our great racing tradition.
Speaking of Regattas, we are full into planning for our Fiasco, and Peaches ‘n PHRF events that have been loved by racers from your Club and many other Clubs around the lake. I want to take this time to formally invite you and your members to these two premier Regattas in 2019. You can gain access to more information on our website as it develops over the next few months: and our Facebook page /Fiftypointsailingclub.
I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce to you the officers of Fifty Point Sailing Club: Troy Farncombe (Vice Commodore) and Randy St.Jacques (Treasurer).
Please if you have questions, or if you just want to say hello, feel free to contact me at any time, See You on the water!
Warm Regards,
Greg Jordan
FPSC Commodore
