Port Washington YC Charity Cup Regatta
We all have a special place in our lives. For some it is our home, that safe harbor where we are protected from the outside world, and where we find security in familiar surroundings. For others it may be a beautiful garden full of texture and color, or the waterfront at sunset. Some of our special places may not be a location at all, but a wonderful memory or a dream we keep in a secret corner of our mind. For sick children and their families on Long Island, there is a "house that love built," known as the Ronald McDonald House, located at Schneider Children's Hospital in New Hyde Park. The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island is a "home away from home" providing comfort and shelter to families experiencing the pain of having a sick child in an area hospital. The goal at Ronald McDonald house is to offer comfort to families, both physical and emotional as they cope with a seriously ill child. Instead of spending nights in hospital waiting rooms or costly hotels, families who seek excellent care that is far from home, can stay in the warm and caring environment at Ronald McDonald House.

On the Bay
In March of this year, the Morris Yacht & Beach Club on City Island, NY was destroyed by fire. Virtually everything was lost. For several years, Morris has been the host club of the Fordham University Sailing Team. To assist the club in its rebuilding efforts, the Fordham team is soliciting burgee donations from yacht clubs around the world. To date, 74 such burgees have been received. Most have come from the USA but the club has received burgees from as far away as France, Ireland and Bermuda. If you would be willing to donate a burgee from your club, a size 12" x 18" is best. If you don't know if your burgee has been donated already, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put MORRIS BURGEES in the Subject so your message won't be deleted by accident. If you know the burgee has not been donated, mail it to Coach Joe Sullivan, Fordham University Sailing Team, c/o Mike Roberts, Director of Club Sports, Vincent T. Lombardi Memorial Center, Fordham University, Bronx, NY 10458.
