This year’s U15 Lacrosse National Championship Tournament was held in Buena Vista, FL at the ESPN’s Wide World of Sports complex. Twenty-seven teams competed from around the nation, including teams from California, Colorado, Texas, Syracuse, Long Island, New Jersey, Louisiana and Baltimore. This year’s winner of the championship game is a team called FCA (Fellowship of Christina Athletes). This is the second year in a row that FCA has won the national U15 championship.
This team includes three players from Long Island including one player from our own Manhasset High School, No. 25 defenseman Philip Boukas. In addition to being on the championship winning team, Philip was also selected to the US Lacrosse All-Tournament team. The players walked away with many friendships, highlighted by a jersey swap.
The Around Long Island Race (ALIR) is the kind of regatta that challenges all those statistics we in the sailing community have been hearing over the past few months. Sailing is losing members; young people aren’t sailing anymore or young families don’t have the time to sail. Last week, the Sea Cliff Yacht Club, the organizing authority for the ALIR, showed the world that this is not always the case. From the starting line on Thursday, July 29 just south of Rockaway Point until the last boat finished on Sunday morning, 75 teams raced 190 miles out on the Atlantic Ocean, past Jones Beach, Fire Island and the Hamptons, around Montauk Point, through Block Island Sound, Orient Point, and Plum Gut with a finish in Hempstead Harbor.
Mother Nature left her calling card on Manhasset Bay on Sunday. After the record-breaking heat on Saturday, everyone was looking forward to a slight break in the heat and some wind for our sailors. What we got instead was a terrifying 30 minutes or so of what many think might have been a tornado. Winds registered in the 60 knots with higher gusts. Your columnist was at Manhasset Bay YC for the final day of MBYC Race Week. The racing was over and the club was filled with racers and crew waiting anxiously for scores to be tabulated and winners crowned. Since the skies looked somewhat ominous, the Awards Ceremony was moved to the tent on the lawn that was erected for the Pixel/Blue Jay Regatta, which had ended on Friday. People were milling around, trophies were arranged at the head table. Everything was set to go and the ceremony was scheduled for 3 p.m.

Centre Island Beach in Bayville will be the place to be for summer fun when the American Red Cross in Nassau County celebrates its 21st Annual Swim-A-Cross, Saturday, July 24, with a huge family-friendly party on the beach.
“It’s hard to believe that this event began two decades ago with just a handful of swimmers,” said Frank Cassano, chief executive officer of the Nassau Red Cross. “We really want to celebrate the efforts of those who started this event while inviting family, friends and spectators to join in the fun on the shore.”

While residing in Oyster Bay in the 1890’s, Theodore Roosevelt once said, “I wish that we citizens of Oyster Bay could make here a breathing place for all the people of this neighborhood, especially the less fortunate ones.” After his death, this vision became a reality with the creation of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, and now triathlon enthusiasts are able to run, swim, and bike this beautiful area in the 23rd Annual TOBAY Triathlon on Sunday, Aug. 29.
