Senior's Last Day of Classes Cancelled at Schreiber
As a result of last year's senior pranks that went well beyond adolescent high jinx, Schreiber Principal Jay Lewis attempted to pre-empt a repeat of last year's last day of school by canceling the last day of classes, Monday, June 13 and initiating a "Senior Day" on Friday, June 10. However, the seniors were not notified about Monday's cancellation until midday on Friday, June 10. Some students believe they were deliberately kept in the dark.

On the Bay
Storm Trysail's Block Island Race Week XXI is upon us again. This biennial event is one of the most popular and eagerly awaited sailing race weeks in the country. According to Race Chairman John Fisher, speaking about Monday, June 20 start of racing, "It looks like we're going to have good conditions. Tomorrow we'll see the end of the northeasterlies and the beginning of the southwesterlies." Good wind, great race management, plus heated competitions in a large variety of classes, plus the famously post-racing social events, make this one of the highlights of the summer racing circuit. Four fleets (red, white, blue) will sail windward-leewards on four different courses, with a minimum of two races each day planned for the four of five race days. The green fleet will race around government marks and there is one race scheduled each day. The fleets are competing for class trophies and Rolex watches. Tuesday has been reserved for the Round the Island Race, with the winner receiving the coveted Island Sailing Club of Cowes Trophy, which was first awarded in 1965. This trophy commemorates the link between Block Island Race Week and Britain's Cowes Week, after which Block Island Week is patterned. It will be awarded to the overall IRC rated boat along with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner timepiece. The US-IRC Trophy will be awarded to the IRC boat that triumphs in the most competitive IRC class racing in Block Island Race Week.
