Laser Masters Worlds at National YC & Royal St. George YC, Dun Laoghaire, Ireland
Four stalwart District 8 sailors made their way to Ireland for the Laser Masters Worlds.  Lindsay reports high winds were the norm, but the European sailors are used to that!  Among the results:
Lindsay Hewitt, 2nd place, 75+ Radials
Mike Matan, 8th place, Standard Master
Rudy Ratsep, 10th place, Radial Great-Grand Master (top American)
Ryo Sakai, 21st place, Radial Master

Congrats to all!  (I have a feeling Lindsay sailed his Laser from here to Ireland - you'll have to ask him to check it out!)

                       Race Report: Dinghy Shop Laser Fall Series XXI Day 2 - Five sailors found a gorgeous day on the south shore - sun, 10 knots of breeze, and a great place to sail.   Close racing between Paul & Nora- lots of place changing between them! The series continues this month into mid-October - c'mon out guys, this is a fun series.  You don't have to do the whole series to participate.

                         Race Report - 2018 Ward Bell Memorial Regatta, Hempstead Harbour Club, August 18:  A great turnout of 22 sailors met with a typical north shore summer breeze - from 10 kts dropping down to straight up, to sudden blasts, sunshine to rain squalls, shifts & holes rewarded the most versatile sailors.  This club saw a good turnout of its own members - a good example!  Visiting sailors enjoyed the great hospitality that this club always offers.  Many thanks to the good folks at HHC for a fun regatta.

                 Race Report - District 8 Grand Prix, Sayville Yacht Club August 11-12:   25 Laser sailors invaded the Sayville YC to do battle in the renowned warm lumpy waters of Blue Point, undeterred by the rainy forecast for the weekend.  The lightning held off long enough for Saturday, with four races completed in ten to fifteen knots of breeze.  Sunday greeted the early arrivals with a drenching sunshower, but sunscreen was needed by race time.  The wind came back at eleven to fourteen.  Prior champions Mike Matan and Lawrence McGrath went at it, with Mike coming out victorious by one point.  BTW, the club also hosted the district championship for the Sunfish class, the very capable race commitee sending Lasers, Radials, and Sunfish around the course with no interference.  The folks at Sayville know how to party - Saturday night featured a tasty BBQ, beer provided by the South Bay Brewing Company, and live music by the Urge.  If you missed the action this year, make this one a must-do for next year!

JWGIII 
(a.k.a Uncle Woody)
1937 - 2018

Please join us in a celebration of his life Friday, August 3rd, 1100 at Christ Church, 61 E Main St, Oyster Bay, NY 11771.

 — with J Woody Glenn and 3 others.
Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club

Seawanhaka lost a lion today with the passing of J. Wooderson Glenn. Known simply as Uncle Woody to generations of Seawanhaka members he was a nearly unrivaled leader of sailing at our club and one of the most recognizable and lovable characters in our small community. As the burgee flew at half mast this evening nature paid its own respects with a beautiful rainbow over his house on the Centre Island creek. Fair winds and following seas to a wonderful shipmate and friend.

 

8 bells...
Sadly, we lost Woody Glenn this week.  Woody was a longtime Laser sailor (as well as Ravens, Shields, his beloved classic Herreshoff, I don't know how many other classes) and was not only a great competitor, but was always ready to help those who needed a hand, as well as those of us who didn't think we needed a hand!  He certainly helped me get started in the class, and I'm sure many of us have similar stories to tell.  Of course, he always brought his great sense of humor to the water.  He was certainly an inspiration and will be sorely missed.

Race Report: District 8 Regatta At Southampton Yacht Club  Saturday, 5/12/18

           It rained a bit while we rigged, but four District 8 stalwarts were treated to a nice, if cloudy, afternoon.  The wind was  light for the most part, with a few gusts, so the races were held in Old Fort Pond, the inlet just off the Yacht Club, instead of Shinnecock Bay.  The courses were short, upwind-downwind, so we got in 14, count'em, 14 starts!  The racing was close, and everyone had a chance to be first and last.  I tallied the score below with no throwouts - but since everyone scored at least 2 fourth places, putting in one or two throwouts doesn't change the ranking.  Next week is the final for the Spring Series at Dinghy Shop in Amityville, then on June 9th we're back at Southampton for the final in this series-- the Dr. Hull Regatta.  Be there!

Race Report: District 8 Regatta At Southampton Yacht Club  Saturday, 5/05/18

           Where was everyone? Geoff Loffredo and I were the only ones to race - so we had a match racing session! Just like the last America's Cup - Geoff made a clean sweep.  This was the first race in a series of three, we're scheduled again for next week.

 



        Race Report: Dinghy Shop Spring Series, Race One, Saturday, 4/14/18
                           
                         6 sailors sailed 6 races in a breeze that started at 11 kts and died to very little.  The scores don't tell the whole story, the racing was very close.  Upwind/downwind, twice around, and even a modified olympic course kept the day interesting.

A note from Bob - Over the years, every now and then, I get a note from someone asking how to join a race. The short answer - just show up! We'll get you signed in at the site. We don't need advance notice, and we don't hold anyone responsible if they can't make it at the last minute (flashback to a previous years' Southampton YC Regatta, when the alternator on my tow vehicle failed halfway there!) There may be an Invitational or some other event that requires qualifying, check the Schedule, but the vast majority of our events have no pre-registration. Anyhow, just bring your boat to the next regatta that looks good to you and you're in!
