  • Isabella Tarbet broke a toe on “something” in the surf the day before an ocean lifeguard test that she wanted to take this summer, but it’s all right now, as she proved in the Great Bonac 5K in Springs Monday, finishing fifth among the females in Great Bonac’s 5K.
  • Michel Vaillancourt, who designed Sunday’s Grand Prix course, one that he thought was “tough, but not super tough,” predicted during the walkthrough that the 34 horse and rider combinations would have trouble at the next to last fence, owing to the fact that after having pushed their mounts through an in-and-out preceding it they’d have little time to collect themselves for the penultimate one.

East Hampton RECenter and at Albert’s Landing met in a competitive meet at Bill and Dominique Kahn’s house in Georgica Close Saturday, the chief winner of which was the Lustgarten Foundation for pancreatic cancer research, which netted $8,000, twice as much as had been raised in the inaugural event last year.

  • Forty-two intrepid stand-up paddlers, plus two on prone boards and five in kayaks, spanned 18 miles of the open ocean Saturday morning between the Montauk Lighthouse and Block Island’s New Harbor.
