Attention All Baseball and Softball Players!
On The Bay
The weather has not been conducive for frostbiting, with high winds preventing sailing on several weekends. On Sunday, December 21st, three boats were out racing in 12-14 knot winds out of the west. There was a little chop on Manhasset Bay, and it was quite cold, and luckily there were no capsizes as the water temperature was 33∞. The Race Committee was in full force with six members on Kraus' Kastle and three crash boats protecting the racers from harm. Hot dogs and hamburgers were the menu for the day, topped off with Barbara Schmidt's delicious and coveted brownies. Winners for the day: 1. #536, Pedro Lorson/Eva Lund, 2. #514, Ted Toombs/Matt Cornachio, and 3. #511, Stephanie Baas/Dana Schnipper.
Happy New Year 2004
