On The Bay
Thomas L. Stark could be called one of our "own" for he grew up in Port Washington, learned to sail at the Knickcerbocker YC, and is still a member there although he lives in Riverside, CT. Stark distinguished himself in the international sailing scene recently when he came in third in the inaugural Swan 45 Gold Cup in Capri, Italy. It must have been very exciting over in Capri last week, for the racing was competitive and the ultimate title up for grabs until the very last race. In a final day that brought torrential rain and light, shifty winds that delayed the start of the final windward-leeward race, the race finally was finished in a light 9 knots of breeze.
