On the Bay
Finally there was some frostbiting on a Sunday afternoon - but not in our bay. Sailors had to travel to Larchmont YC to find open water, and that is exactly what Pedro Lorson and Yasu Kawahara did last Sunday, Feb. 29. The two must have gotten tired of waiting around for Manhasset Bay to melt, so off they went to join 22 other IC dinghies at the starting line just off the Connecticut shore. The Larchmont YC newsletter, Mainsheet, describes their frostbiters as a dazzling array of ex-collegiate All -Americans, national champions, Olympic medalists, America's Cup experts, talented sailmakers and other stars. So Pedro and Yasu had great competition, warm weather, and fairly good wind all afternoon. If the warm weather holds in our area, Manhasset Bay may be ready to receive our fleet of frostbiters this coming Sunday. After a hiatus of several months, the day is eagerly awaited by sailors and Race Committee alike.
