Sail locally, celebrate globally. That is the motto for the Summer Sailstice, a celebration for the longest days of the summer that began in California nine years ago and is now celebrated almost globally, with all American states and 20 other countries participating worldwide. They are also expecting a greater than usual participation.
Summer Sailstice has announced June 20-21 for this year’s annual sailing holiday on the summer solstice weekend and the record participation they expect is for two reasons: People want to sail away their cares, and more sailors than ever are showing support for ocean conservation. “This year people want to unplug and get away from it all,” said Sailstice founder John Arndt. “We expect record participation in Sailstice 2009. The holiday’s parties, imaginative events, and environmental goals emphasize the relaxing and accessible nature of sailing. School’s out, and nothing’s better than grabbing cool drinks, a picnic lunch, and enjoying the water with friends and family on the longest day of the year. Sailstice helps everyone focus on simple, low-cost ways to enjoy sailing.”
Registration for boys and girls basketball will be held Mon./Tues. June 8 and 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the cafeteria of St. Peter’s School. Parents/guardians and CYO players must both attend. Uniform measurements will be taken and registration fees will be collected as well.
Peter Galloway, with crew Paul Steinborn and Ched Proctor, won the 2009 Sonar Atlantic Coast Championships held over the weekend of May 31-June 1. Hosted by Manhasset Bay YC, the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) and Sonar Fleet #11, the racing was competitive to the very end, when Galloway, who was tied with second place team of Bill Lynn and co-skipper Ed Keuer, with a strong team of Robert Wilber and Harcourt Schutz nipping at their heels, managed to pull ahead in the downwind leg of the seventh and last race of the regatta. Lynn and Wilber got into a tacking duel, Lynn fell into a hole, and the Galloway team jibed away, and onto victory. Galloway attributed his win to, “consistency, minimizing risk, and maximizing opportunities. We just had to stay in front of them.”
Thirty years of varsity play, five Metropolitan Association Championships, seven All Americans, a 31-game unbeaten streak that spanned parts of three seasons, and an undefeated season in 1999 are all part of the rich history of Portledge Varsity Boys Lacrosse. Much of this success was due to the incredible leadership provided by R. Curtis Sawyer, who served as director of athletics and head coach of Varsity Boys Lacrosse from 1981 to 2003. Sawyer was honored at halftime of a varsity lacrosse game in which the school officially named the lacrosse field after him

In most communities, the first Sunday in June is just like every other spring Sunday. Not so for Port Washington, for this is the day for all to celebrate our spectacular waterfront. The Chamber of Commerce offers a jewel of a day to all takers and it is called HarborFest. And what a celebration it is. Streets on lower main and the Town Dock are jammed with people who have been cooped up in their homes all winter and are ready to meet and greet. And what better place to do this than down by the water.
American Yacht Club’s Spring Series has come and gone. And with it marks the beginning of the sailing and racing season here on Manhasset Bay. After a long winter, spring always brings hope for a season filled with good wind, sunny days, and lots of great racing. For those who prefer a calmer day on the water, there is always the lure of a cruise to harbors near and far. The days are long, the sunsets beautiful, and the shipyards are a bevy of activity. It won’t be long until all the boats are at their moorings, waiting for their owners to take them for a spin. It was a long wait, but worth it.
