High Note for Port Vikings
The fall campaign didn't end in spectacular fashion for the Vikings. But when you consider that the season opener was postponed due to national tragedy, the Port Viking football team and its "Booster" supporters made it a fine season to remember. The club finished with a very respectable 4 and 4 record, and when you consider some of their competition (Lawrence, Garden City and Mepham) you have to give them a lot of credit for improving upon last season's record when they started the program with a new coaching staff and some new approaches to the offensive scheme. The varsity football team had a lot of support from the fans and local merchants, and much of the congratulations for heightened enthusiasm must go to the newly formed Port Football Boosters.
On The Bay
The Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend brought interesting sailing conditions to Manhasset Bay. The day started out warm and sunny with little breeze, but once the boats were out on the bay, the wind picked up and racing was cancelled after three races. There were several capsizes, but all sailors and boats were rescued quickly and returned to safety on shore. The top boats for the day: 1. #536, Pedro Lorson, 2. #514, Ted Toombs, and 3. #121, Fee Metropoulos. Crew names were unavailable at press time. The Scituate Frostbite Association, in conjunction with the Duxbury YC and the Duxbury Bay Maritime School, will host the Frostbite National Championship. Scheduled for next weekend, Dec. 1-2 , sailing will take place on the waters of Duxbury Bay, approximately 30 miles south of Boston.
