Peter Needham, coach of the Shelter Island School sailing team, reports that “the sailors have been enjoying the unusually balmy weather. Amanda Clark has been coaching them with drills that will prepare them for future regattas. In the picture above, are Katie Doyle on the left and Holly Ross on the right.

This season both Greenport and Port Jefferson have new head coaches and both have had a strong first half of the season. (more…)
