On The Bay
Thirty nine young Manhasset Bay YC sailors, ages 7 and up, held a regatta recently to benefit the children served by Family and Children's Association, one of the largest nonprofit human service agencies on Long Island. Sailing in their individual 8-foot Optimist sailboats, the youngsters were cheered on by MBYC members and Family and Children's supporters Tom and Ilene Hoban, Commodore John Barry, and parents and friends. A check in the amount of $1,500 was presented to Richard P. Dina, president and CEO of Family and Children's Association. "The hard-work of the Manhasset Bay Yacht Club kids will help to make Long Island a nicer place for less fortunate kids." Said one of the young sailors, "I was so excited last night about helping kids I couldn't sleep!"
