(Hempstead was first, with a reported 8.75 thefts per 1,000; Freeport was third with 4.65 per 1,000.) FULL STORY

  • Sports: On The Bay

    "In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer." -Albert Camus. For those sailors who have not had the opportunity to head south for Key West Race Week, or to any other southern venue that is warm and sunny, and for the frostbiters who have been denied access to Manhasset Bay because of either icy conditions, high winds, or high snowdrifts, this quote serves us well. For it is only an incurable optimistic outlook that can get us through these short winter days, huddled near a fireplace for warmth, with a good book (on sailing, naturally) to help us bide our time. But before you know it, spring will be upon us and we'll be back in the boatyards preparing for another sailing season. And we can enjoy vicariously the great adventures of those who managed to catch a ride on a boat in Key West. Reports of what happened and how our local sailors faired will have to wait until next week, as many of our returning teams were either delayed or had flights cancelled when trying to return to LaGuardia or Kennedy. But from initial reports, it was a really good time, with great sailing. More next week. FULL STORY Logo
