Secondary School Stadium Gift: Lights, Camera, Action!
While we may not see cameras rolling on the grounds of the Manhasset Secondary School, there will definitely be lots of lights and plenty of action.
SCA Summer Study Award Recipients
With summer program experiences approaching their completion, the Manhasset School Community Association has announced the recipients of the 2002 Summer Study Awards. Twenty financial awards were granted this year. Since 1953, the SCA has allocated a substantial part of its annual budget for the Summer Study Program. Awards are presented to Manhasset High School juniors who wish to spend part or all of the summer between their junior and senior years participating in an enrichment type activity. The tremendous success of the SCA Fair and Luncheon make funding for this program and others possible.

On The Bay
Manhasset Bay was a busy place last weekend. The 70th Manhasset Bay YC Race Week, which was held from Thursday, August 8 - Sunday, August 11, filled the bay with sails from the Great Neck shore over to Port Washington. What a beautiful sight - a multitude of sails, in varying sizes, from the tiny Optimist, Blue Jays, Lasers, and 420s for the junior sailors, to the Sonars, MBOs (Manhasset Bay One Designs), KODs (Knickerbocker One Design), Ideal 18s, Snipes, Sunfish and the largest of all, the PHRF boats. At one point the Race Committee had three race courses set, one for the juniors, another one for the PHRF and MBOs and a third for the Sonar, KODs, and all other boats. While the weather was not the best, very hot and humid with little wind until a southerly filled in during the afternoon, it was still thrilling to see so many sails fill the bay. On Thursday, two races were held, one in the morning for the WRC (Women's Racing Clinic) and another competition in the evening for the Thirsty Thursday group. Seven teams of women, hailing from Manhasset Bay YC, Knickerbocker YC and Sea Cliff YC, sailed in Ideal 18s. This is the group of women who got together last year once a month to attend sailing seminars, and have progressed to racing once a week this season. The winners (skipper/crew): 1. Nan Barry/Lynn Whipple, 2. Stef Baas/Loreta Chiafolo, and 3. Cindy Jordan/Erin Kinney/Beth Hartigan. At 1900 hours (7 p.m.), RC was back on the water, setting courses for the PHRF Race in conjunction with the Thirsty Thursday group. The PHRF ("big boats") continued to sail and receive scores on Friday - Sunday, and those scores will be listed separately. Winners for Thursday evening, August 8 only for the CBCA Fall Series Race #4: Division I (Course ZDT, 7.44 nm): 1. #39516, Avalanche, Al Albrecht, 2. #128, Zero Gravity, Tony Dalia, and 3. #33877, Rising Star, Yehuda Rosenstock.
