Over the years in the early sailing season it takes time to get the race reporting to run smoothly. Such has been the case this year. What follows is what is available for the last two weekends. Some became available late on Sunday.
Bay Racing - 6/21 - Sonar (5) 1 Bob Kirtland, 2 Bob Baskind. KOD (4) 1 #8 (name not available). MBO (5) 1 Allen/Heinzerling (2) Godfrey/Richardson.
R. Marshall Stross of North Shore Yacht Club sent in the next three paragraphs:
"Due to lack of wind, only one entrant finished in the ninth annual Day Race Regatta June 20 at North Shore Yacht Club. That was Josh Burack of New Rochelle, sailing Peregina. He was declared winner in Division 1. Eighteen entered.
"There was sufficient wind for the 10 Sonars, and first place went to Robert Schmidt of Manhasset, sailing Barnstormer. He was awarded the club's new Rosenberg Single Division Trophy, contributed this spring by Stanley R. Rosenberg.
Rosenberg, who lives in Manhattan, sailing Tzaris, and Dan Simon of Plandome Manor, sailing Weekend Warrior, tied for second place.

On June 14, the Times in the Sports section carried an excellent report about Eric Tabarly, the outstanding French sailor who was "reported dead." He was lost off the Welsh coast on a voyage from Benodet (Finistere in Brittany, France) to Ireland. Even in that short article one reads "no life jacket," "inexperienced crew of four," "no satelite buoy," and a "non-functioning radio." The article is probably sufficient for most readers. But this report went beyond.
Thanks to George Vecsey, in France, with his wife Marianne and reporting about the World Cup, your reporter read and studied about seven more pages (including large photos) that George thoughtfully sent to her.
