Knickerbocker Yacht Club closed over three years ago. Besides being a Yacht Club, Knickerbocker had a thriving tennis program. When the club closed, the close-knit women’s tennis team decided to stay together. The team renamed themselves Port Washington Tennis, added a few new valuable members to the group and continued to enjoy their tennis and their friendships. They just completed their third season playing together as a team in the Long Island Interclub Tennis League. On Tuesday, Sept. 20 the Long Island Interclub Tennis League held their Annual End of Year Dinner benefiting the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, which the group attended. The camaraderie and spirit they shared at Knickerbocker Yacht Club lives on.
The Charles W. Morgan is the last surviving wooden whaleship from the great days of sail. Built in 1841 in New Bedford, MA, the Morgan had a successful 80-year whaling career. She made 37 voyages before retiring in 1921, and was preserved as an exhibit through the efforts of a number of dedicated citizens. After being on display in South Dartmouth, MA, until 1941, she came to Mystic Seaport, where each year thousands of visitors walk her decks and hear the fascinating story of her career as a whaling vessel, historic exhibit, film and media star, and a porthole into America’s rich history.
Earlier this year, the North Shore United Boys Under-9 and U-10 teams attended a New York Red Bulls game and noticed that youth soccer players escorted players onto the field.
“They were looking from the stands and they were dreaming to do the same thing,” North Shore United Soccer Association club director Alex Fridman said.

Laurie Jury, Zoke Kiwimatch (NZL), with crew Logan Fraser, Michael Edmonds, Jarl Brothwick and Matthew Stevens has won the 2011 Knickerbocker Cup. Sally Barkow, Team 7 Match Race (USA) was second, followed by Nicolai Sehested, TRE-FOR Match Racing (DEN). Due to light wind on both days and lightning storms interrupting racing on Thursday, the regatta ended before the completion of the round robin, forcing the results to be calculated on a percentage basis. For his efforts, Jury and his team will have his name permanently affixed to the Knickerbocker Cup along with other match racers such as Dave Perry (USA), Ed Baird (USA), Terry McLaughlin (CAN), Paul Cayard, USA, , Peter Gilmour, (AUS), Russell Coutts, (NZL), and the newer hot match racers Reuben Corbett NZL) and Phil Robertson (NZL). They also receive an automatic entry into the Argo Bermuda Gold Group Cup at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club in Hamilton, Bermuda in early October.
Pride in Port weekend was outstanding for our teams and our fans. So impressed with our teams, our spectators were given a great show at the football game. The new scoreboard looked great and having Mikey Megdal’s family there to share in its glory was so wonderful. The football team played their hearts out playing against highly ranked Uniondale. The wonderful thing about football is that week three is coming up fast so come to Schreiber to see the varsity play at home this Saturday against Hicksville at 1:30.
Welcome back to another school year and the weekly “around the fields” report on what is happening with Schreiber high school sports. This week is a special week as we lead up to Pride in Port day on Saturday. One thing you will notice on the turf field is a new scoreboard. The board was partially funded through fundraising efforts by the teams that play on the field as well as generous donations. The scoreboard is dedicated to the memory of Mikey Megdal, a former student who passed away at a young age who was the ultimate Vikings fan. We will honor him and his family on Saturday before the game.
The Port Washington Vikings baseball program will be having its second annual fundraiser, “Game Day,” a day of fun for the entire family, on Sunday, Sept. 18 (rain date September 25). The activities begin at noon and end at 5 p.m. at Guggenheim Elementary School.
