This year’s Manhasset Bay Fall Series is a very special event, when Manhasset Bay YC honors a very special sailor and longtime friend John B. Thomson, Jr. The 3-day event, which occurs on October 19-20 and October 26th this year, includes a Cruising division this year, and it will serve as a fundraiser to help find a cure for ALS.
I ask all local cruisers and racers to come out and support this event, or at the very least send a donation of your choice. All the information to sign up to race or just donate can be found here.
John B. Thomson, of the famous yachts Infinity, is a pioneer in our sport. One of the most generous men I’ve known, he’s given countless young sailors the opportunity to compete at the highest level of our sport, all over the world. John is one of the greatest people I’ve ever sailed with or been associated with, inside or outside sailing.
John competed and won almost every every major event around the world over the years. He’s the reason the MB Fall Series exists, or for that matter, than any fall racing at all exists on Long Island Sound.
Please do what you can to help this great cause. Let’s show the rest of LIS what EBYRA is made of.
I look forward to seeing you all out there. Thank you so much.
John Esposito, Commodore
