Camp Miramar

by Barbara Banchik, August 15th 2018

Miramar was approached by a maritime camp located at the Knights of Columbus to arrange a sailing program for their campers. After mulling over the costs and benefits of hosting a youth sailing program, we decided to give the program a chance. Our reasoning was that this may provide an opportunity as a feeder program for young members or their parents. Twelve kids attended and a counselor, 9 boys and 3 girls, ranging in age from 9 to 14.

We arranged 4 Ensigns as training vessels: Celest, Lucky Us!, Amanda Rose and The Bees Knee’s. Maria G. created a great power point program with handouts for the kids covering points of sailing, nomenclature, knots etc. Our volunteer captains were Leon, Barbara, Marc and David. Special thanks to our crews, who made sure no boat went out without a captain and crew: Tony, Glen, Maria S., Andrew, Victor, Richard, Sara, Christin and Andrea.

The kids seemed to be ok with the book stuff but occasionally got fidgety (i.e., throwing water at each other etc), but the days were extremely hot. The last day we raced the boats and the winds got pretty heavy. We were so impressed with the way the youngsters handled the boats, how steady they were at the helm, their clean tacks and how very much they enjoyed the strong winds and big seas. We got an extremely positive reaction from the camp with the kids saying it was great.

There were many plus factors to the program but it took 14 volunteers and a lot of effort so we will have to evaluate what to do next year.

Kossman Regatta Ensign Class

by Nasim Shamailov

Another Great day on the water. Beautiful, steady 10-12 knt wind South-West then South and South East by 3:00pm. Clear sky. And very-very strong current. At times the current exceeded 3knt at Rockaway 12.

First race was windward-leeward to Coney Island mark#2, back through start to Sheepshead Bay Mark#3 and Finish. As the wind shifted it quickly become beam-reach course, no tacking, it makes the race dull. UFORIA skippered by Andrew, ruled the race. Second and third race courses and starting lines were changed because wind shifted to South East.

In the last, third race SPLASH skippered by Richard Lubell failed to hold the leading position and was ousted by UFORIA. And THE BEES KNEES skippered by a new and promising member of the club David Shin.

Our congratulations to David, who took third place in the regatta; it is his first prize in the regattas. Second place - SPLASH skippered by Rich Lubell. Kossman regatta championship is confirmed by its last year winner - UFORIA skippered by Andrew Shabalin.
