  • Sports: On The Bay

    One would think that come the fall, sailors would be content to say goodbye to the sailing season, prepare their boats for the boatyard and settle in for the cold days of the winter. Actually it is just the opposite, thanks to great winds on Manhasset Bay and Long Island Sound during these fall months (for the most part, let's not forget the "marathon" one design race last week). But it's much more fun to equate the fall with great sailing, possibly because sailors as a group just don't want to admit the summer has ended. In any case, the fall is a busy time for sailors. For example, this past week there was the Leukemia Cup at the Port Washington YC, the Storm Trysail Intercollegiate Regatta over at Larchmont YC, a huge Star class regatta, also at Larchmont YC, the Columbus Day Race, and sailing on Mill Pond by members of the Mill Pond Model YC. Upcoming events include Manhasset Bay Fall Series which begins this weekend, continuing the following Saturday and Sunday. Also this Saturday is the dedication ceremony for the Star boat (11 am across from Tease Restaurant). And the frostbiters are getting ready for their dinghy sailing - their organizational meeting is on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at MBYC (7:30 p.m.). So there's lots going on, providing options for sailors to extend their season, and put off for a little more time their "to do" list, which we all know will get done eventually. But if given the choice between catching up at home or taking a sail out on Long Island Sound when the brilliant cloudless sky gives the sun a chance to turn the Sound into a sea of diamonds, and the wind ruffles your hair and gently touches your face, any rational human being would opt for spending the day on the water. Those pesky tasks can wait until the short winter days, unless of course, you happen to be a frostbiter, that group who really has difficulty saying goodbye to the summer, so much so that they race in the coldest and most severe weather imaginable, and in dinghies no less.
