Frostbite Yacht Club (FBYC)

The Frostbite Yacht Club (FBYC) has a long and close relationship with Essex Yacht Club dating back to 1933 when the first Eastern Frostbite Dinghy Regatta was held on the Connecticut River. This regatta was the genesis of the Essex Yacht Club. Continuing to present day the Connecticut River Frostbite Squadron at Essex holds Spring and Fall Frostbite racing from EYC. The fleet consists of Etchells, Ideal 18s, JY15s, Lasers and 420s (sailed by the Valley Regional Sailing Club).
