On the Bay
The Manhasset Bay Challenge Cup is the oldest yachting trophy competed for annually in the United States. Only the famous America's Cup and the Brooklyn Cup precede it, and they are competed for at longer intervals. Since 1902, the Challenge Cup has been won by 26 different clubs from Chicago, to Marblehead, to Bermuda with Eastern YC of Marblehead winning it nine times. Manhasset Bay YC has been the victor seven times, (1903,1930, 1965, 1971, 1975, 1995, 1998 and 2002). This year Bill Simon and Einar Haukland represented MBYC and came in 5th overall. Eastern YC won the Cup, again, giving it a scorecard of 10 wins since the inception of the Cup. Seven teams competed - listed here in the order of finishing: Eastern YC (Dru Slattery); Cottage Park YC (Erik Goethert); American YC (Larry Ehrhardt); Noroton YC (Rick Doerr); MBYC; Boothbay Harbor YC (Kenneth Colburn); and Corinthian YC (Carolyn Zaleski).
