The ISAF Sailor of the Year awards are recognized as the highest honor a sailor can receive in recognition of his/her outstanding achievements and this year’s official award ceremony took place Nov. 10 in Busan, South Korea at the Busan Yacht Club in Haeundae-gu. The winners of this esteemed award for 2009 were Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) and Torben Grael (BRA).
Tunnicliffe is no stranger to success. In the past 12 months, she set her sights on a variety of challenges across a range of boats and disciplines: she won the gold medal for the USA in the Laser Radial at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the first U.S. Women’s Olympic sailing medal in 20 years, and has kept herself busy ever since, sailing not only the one-person Laser Radial, but also a Snipe alongside her Match Racing commitments.

The 2009 girl’s varsity tennis season began in late August with modest hopes for a winning season. What followed was a remarkable run to a division championship, an 11-1 league record, and advancement to the Conference II championship match. That the team fell short, losing to Plainview by the score of 4-3, in no way diminished the thrills and excitement of the fantastic journey of this year’s team.
The Manhasset Men’s Softball League concluded its season with an exciting championship series under sunny skies on Nov. 8. The Sportsmen defeated the Bulldogs, winning the first game of the series in extra innings by a score of 8 to 7, and then winning the deciding third game by three runs. The Bulldogs won the second game by two runs.
Cold and rainy weather did not dampen the performance of Manhasset High School’s Varsity Crew team in the 45th Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston in mid-October. Manhasset sent two boats to compete in this storied regatta. While the sun shined for most of the first day of races, on the second day of the regatta the Youth and Collegiate rowers had to endure the heavy rain of a cold nor’easter as they contended against the other entrants.
On Monday, Oct. 26, three of Manhasset’s young star cross-country runners won county championships at Bethpage Park and a fourth runner was All-County.
