A very special event occurred in New York City earlier this month, which had an impact on the waterfront right here in Port Washington. As with all events on the waterfront, there is a story to be told. It all started about 400 years ago, in 1609 specifically, when a Dutch ship called de Halve Maen, from Holland, under the command of Captain Henry Hudson, arrived on the shores of what is now known as New York, establishing Nieuw Amsterdam on the southern tip of Manhattan. According to Jhr. Job B.B. Sandberg, commodore for North and South America (ret.), International Flying Dutchman Class Organization, in addition to Nieuw Amsterdam, a colony of Nieuw Nederland was founded up the river Hudson, called “de Mauritis Rivier” named after H.R.H. Prince Mauritis van Oranje, King of the Netherlands at that time.

Your columnist received the following from Bruce Thomson, forwarded from the Editor of The Port News and thought readers may be interested as it refers back to racing on Manhasset Bay years ago and invites racers to a regatta in October. He wrote:

“Andrea Watson’s report on Bill Sandberg’s celebration of Race Weeks past suggests that there may still be lots of fans of the celebration of one design sailing that was Race Week back in the Sixties. If so, those people may be interested in an upcoming regatta, the U S Sailing Championship of Champions to be held at the Carlyle Sailing Association 50 miles east of St. Louis on October 14-17.

On the Bay

You know it is August when Manhasset Bay looks like glass and there is not even the littlest bit of wind to be found. Last Thursday evening, the Thirsty Thursday group had a very difficult time. Racers don’t ask for much, just a little wind to propel their boats and let them enjoy their favorite sport. But on Aug. 13 only one boat out of a fleet of 18 boats actually finished – all the rest were DNF (did not finish). For those of you unfamiliar with racing, getting a DNF is one of the frustrating experiences because it means that the skipper and crew got to the starting line, began the race, and floated around looking for a speck of wind for the entire race, in this case about 2 hours. The one lucky (or very skilled) team that actually finished the race was Yalcin Tarhan, on Xcite, who finished in 2 hours 14 minutes and 29 seconds (corrected time 2:06:49). That means that all the other boats were out there for a very long time. For their efforts, they all should be listed for their dedication to racing and the love of the sport. The boats in Division I: boat name, (owner): Leverage (Arthur Buhr), Ripple (John Towers), Nordlys (Bob Schwartz), Avalanche (Al Albrecht), Grace (Gene Gold), and Roy Israel – no boat name. Division II: Vision (Marc Epstein), Motion (Bruce Logan), Rosie (Ron Fink). Division III: Her C Gem (Paula Davis), Avanti (Tomer Levin), Oy (Eric Weintraub), En Passant (Bob Ebenau), On The Beam (Bruce Joseph), Escape (Chuck McCarthy), Eudaimonia (Dan Catanzaro), and Aquila (Keith Dorman). Let’s hope the dog days of summer will give those who enjoy our beautiful Manhasset Bay a break, after all it rained most of June.
