Work is coming along on the oyster sloop Christeen, now berthed in Building J at the Western Waterfront, as she readies for the upcoming Spring season. The National Historic Landmark needed her keel replaced which necessitated taking apart the boat below the water line, putting in the new keel, hardware, and replacing antique square nails with screws and bolts – today’s more secure system of putting ships together.

Senior Joe LaCorte placed 2nd in the steeple chase. This was a particularly grueling 3000 meter race which included a water jump. With the temperature hovering at 35 degrees, Joe’s motivation to clear the water was simple. Keep himself from freezing. A 2010 state qualifier in the steeple jump, LaCorte is no stranger to the event, and placed second to Great Neck South’s Ben Siegel with a time of 10:58.2.

It’s amazing how many people are willing to jump into the winter waters of Oyster Bay Harbor for a good cause. The United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, Inc. (ucpn) hosted its 7th Annual Polar Bear Plunge benefit fundraiser at Theodore Roosevelt Town Park and Marina in Oyster Bay. The parking lot was in the midst of a construction project to create new playing fields but it didn’t deter the crowd. It was a rain or shine event and luckily the rain waited until the swimmers were out of the water!
