Annapolis Yacht Club's annual Fall Series, three weekends of racing, began last weekend off Annapolis.The series was created more than a generation ago to take advantage of generally brisk fall breezes and big-boat participation from sailors heading south from New England for wintering in Florida or the islands.This year, 93 entrants are in the Saturday fleet, made up of smaller cruising one-design, MORC and PHRF C sailors, while the Sunday fleet boasts 102 entries in three IMS splits, four PHRF divisions and the J/35 class, with 66 of those vying for top PHRF fleet honors.

Upsets were the order of the day at the Annapolis Yacht Club's Fall Series last weekend.In one upset, Chuck O'Malley and his team on Rude Awakening took first in the MORC race -- and the series -- with a two-second win over Bob Muller and crew on Stingray.With previous class leader Mirage, sailed by the Lewis/Salvesen Syndicate, falling to ninth in the final race after aces in the first two, if Muller had saved his time and beaten O'Malley, Muller would have won the series with a score of 7.75 to O'Malley's 8. Instead, O'Malley took the race and the series by 2.25 points.

The popular Annapolis Yacht Club Fall Series came to a disappointingconclusion for many in the fleet of approximately 120 IMS, PHRF A and B and J/35 teams competing in the Saturday races last weekend.The wind failed to arrive in time for a start, and that fleet's series-- which also was canceled because of a lack of sailable air the first week of the three-week schedule -- ended with the previous week's race as its only contest.On Sunday, however, the fleet of 117 starters of the 134 MORC, PHRF C and cruising one-design entrants once again made out better thantheir Saturday counterparts.

This year's Annapolis Yacht Club Fall Series, staged over the past three weekends, drew plenty of local and regional interest.Some 100 IMS, J/35, and PHRF A and B sailors were on the course on Saturdays, with similar numbers of PHRF C, MORC, and cruising one-design sailors competing on Sundays.IMS numbers continue to be light locally, but PHRF A-1 and A- 2 hit 31 and 41 entries, respectively, bringing the PHRF overall fleet numbers for the Saturday racing to 89 entries.AYC traditionally has scored both PHRF and IMS not only in individual class splits, but also as total fleets for Fall Series.

NFL fines Jets' Ellis for throwing snow at fans nfl New York Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis was fined $10,000 by the NFL for throwing snow at fans after the team's loss at Seattle on Sunday. Several fans threw snowballs at New York players and staff as they walked off the field after the Seahawks' 13-3 victory. As he approached the walkway leading to the locker room, Ellis reached into a pile of snow, picked up a large chunk and tossed it into the stands at Qwest Field, appearing to hit at least a few fans.

With the television networks' new season announced in New York last week, and the great American ritual of the buying and selling of airtime for next fall beginning, most of the talk at the press conferences and parties involved ratings, audience shares and demographics. But one of the most important assessments of the situation was made here in Baltimore, and it had more to do with the sociology of the schedules than their money-making potential. "I think some progress has been made," John C. White, spokesman for the NAACP, said in an interview after all six schedules had been announced.

In better times, Morgan State coach Chris Fuller might be able to laugh at his team's 6-for-26 shooting from three-point range, or at Norfolk State's 14 steals, 37 trips to the free-throw line and 63 percent second-half shooting. For now, however, the foibles constitute the price of progress for the youthful Bears team, which dropped to 2-13 and 2-3 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference yesterday with a 78-70 loss to the Spartans at Hill Field House. "We are playing a lot of people who didn't play a lot last year," Fuller said.

The Annapolis Yacht Club's annual three-week Fall Series has a special mystique and holds a unique place in the racing schedules of East Coast sailors.In the old days, Annapolis was a way station on the annual big-boat racing circuit, when the likes of Ondine, Running Tide, Congere and other ocean-racing legends were found on Spa Creek for a couple of weeks at a time, in comfortable quarters up at Arnie Gay's or over at AYC, or at one of the bustling service yards in town.Back then the Fall Series was a kind of old home week, a central focus for skippers and crews of the great boats to meet around on their way south from a summer's racing on Long Island Sound and in New England to winter havens -- and more racing -- along the sunny Florida coast.
