Taylor Resnick, 32, won Saturday’s 6-mile ocean standup paddleboard race between Wainscott and Amagansett in 1 hour, 26 minutes, and 29 seconds. Lars Svanberg, 53, whose Main Beach Surf & Sport shop put on the race, from which Paddlers for Humanity benefited, was the runner-up, in 1:26:45.

Resnick and Svanberg were on 14-foot boards. The third-place finisher, Andrew Glidden, 19, and the fourth-place finisher, Quintin Chiapperino, 17, were on 12-foot-6-inch boards.

There were 34 contestants in all, including four on surfboards, whose top finisher (and 20th over all) was Matthew Ryder, 26, in 1:58:33.

Ninth Time
Dahlia Aman, a self-taught tennis player who has won numerous championships, including national age-group titles, recently won her ninth Empire State Games trophy.

Her husband, George, who is a frequent hitting partner (and life master bridge player), placed third in his age group.

Another of Ms. Aman’s hitting partners, Barbara Mueller, has said of her, “She’s incredibly disciplined, focused, and smart on the court. . . . She gets everything! She’s one of those people who, when she decides to do something, does it 100 percent.”

Beach Volleyball
An East Hampton Town-sponsored four-person coed beach volleyball league overseen by Kathy McGeehan will begin play today at Montauk’s Kirk Park Beach at 6 p.m.

Harbor Golf
The following were winners in a member-guest tournament played last month at the Sag Harbor Golf Club: Tom Gibbs and Tom Gibbs Jr., low gross; Brett King and Charlie McCarron, low net; Jessie Phillips, longest drive; Bob Cuthel, closest to the pin at number three, and Bob King, closest to the pin at number eight.

In other club news, Mark Vaughn holed out in two strokes on the 520-yard par-5 15th hole at the Tallgrass Golf Club in Shoreham on May 25, following a 305-yard drive onto the fairway with a 4-hybrid shot that landed in the hole for a double eagle, or albatross, in golf parlance.
