Hi!  Welcome to the FSYC discussion boards.  My name is Mark Dawes.  I’m the yacht club’s communications and boater ed chair and I’ll be moderating the forum.  Feel free to email me with questions or new discussion categories at  My “handle” will be mdawes2. It’ll take a little time to get this started and forum members signed up, but should be a nice utility for the yacht club.  Post a topic and forum members should see your question and the responses will start.  

There are a few guidelines we’d ask posters to respect:

  • Please respect fellow posters, particularly contrasting points of view.
  • Please avoid:
    • Posting spam or advertisements.
    • Posts that risk copyright infringement.  Credit the author. 
    • Politics and offensive language, images or links.
