On the Bay
The Moosehead Awards, aka, International Society for the perpetuation of Cruelty to Racing Yachtsmen, that annual "beat up on the Race Committee" event was as clever and funny as ever, presented by MC Bill Sandberg and his committee of spies to make Sunday afternoon, Oct. 29 at Larchmont YC a most entertaining affair. Each year, Race Committee on both sides of Long Island Sound, are subject to dubious awards, such as Moosehead First Class or Moosehead Supreme. These awards, always delivered with the perfect comedic timing (one wonders if Sandberg and his band of marauders have taken lessons from Comedy Central), depict egregious mistakes by RC during the previous sailing season. How they gather this stuff is open to question, but there must be moles rampant in the ranks of sailors. Could it be that one disgruntled team, wishing for a perfect racing record, but was OCS and furious to be actually caught, ratted on their very own RC? Actually nothing as clandestine as this - most likely. But it is all great fun - especially hearing the bloopers that august yacht clubs managed to accomplish in just one season. If felt like the outtake of a movie, only better, because each of us attending had "been there and done that."
