Boys Swim Team Takes First Step
The Manhasset Boys Varsity Swim Team began their dual meet conference season by defeating overmatched Uniondale 53-40 and Freeport 94-64. A good start, but hardly anything to get excited about considering their successful past vs both opponents. The Indians have only lost to each team once in the past 10 years. They have defeated both Freeport and Uniondale each year for the past five seasons.
On the Bay
Last Sunday, Jan. 9, seemed almost as if it was a late August afternoon, but not because of the weather. Two of our frostbite dinghy teams, Ralf Steitz/Jaime Gross and Pedro Lorson/Yasu Kawahara, after rounding the downwind mark, commenced a tacking duel reminiscent of the match racing that was seen in Manhasset Bay last summer with the Knickerbocker Cup. But there were subtle differences: for example, the weather was in the 40's and cloudy, not like the warm summer breeze found last August; the boats were small dinghies, not the graceful J/105 sailed in the Knickerbocker Cup; and the action was a bit slower as the wind was out of the northwest at about 0 - 2 knots.
