Keeping up with the news of the waterfront has been overbalanced by thoughts of sadness following the death of Jim Devine on July 24 and then Herb Greenberg on July 25. Planning events for this season, we are reminded of Roger Shope's contribution to our sport. For several years ending in 1988, Jim was chairman of MBYC's Fall Series Committee. Herb Greenberg's KOD Knicknack is still in the KOD fleet and sailed by Arthur Kass.
Larchmont YC's 100th Race Week attracted many sailors of our bay. Some results of the sonar are available and MBO classes (July 18-20 and 25-26) and the Blue Jag, 420 Laser and Laser Radial classes for Juniors (July 20, 21, 22). "On the Bay" has undertaken to cover only sailors whose port is Manhasset Bay.
At press time, there is a protest pending in Sonara. Probable results are Mike McAllister/Ted Toombs 2nd, 4th Greg/Beth Danilek, 7 Bob Kirtland and 11th Bill Brakman. Nor is MBO result final: Probably winner is Bob Curtis Adams.
Participating junior sailors will be mentioned and rank of those in the upper half of the fleet indicated. As to junior regattas away from home, let us not forget that even only entering such a regatta deserves recognition. Only juniors of our bay (based on club indicated) are here included.
