Organizers of the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame are looking for ways to rejuvenate a proud institution that has been around since 1956. They're hoping this helps: one of the Hall's most star-studded classes will be inducted at an upcoming ceremony Nov. 10 at Michael's 8th Avenue in Glen Burnie. This year's inductees include former NBA All-Star Sam Cassell (Dunbar High, Florida State), former NFL punter Sean Landetta (Loch Raven, Towson University), PGA golfer Fred Funk (University of Maryland)

Former world champion Star Class sailor Mark Reynolds has shown on the Chesapeake Bay this week why he has been selected to sail for the United States for the fourth time in the Olympics this fall in Sydney, Australia. After five days of racing, the Californian was at the front of the fleet of 112 racing yachts in the Nautica 2000 Star Class World Championship when lack of wind delayed the final race yesterday. With an international of array world champions and Olympic medalists against him, Reynolds, world Star Class champion in 1995, has produced the form that clinched him and partner Magnus Liljedahl, from Miami, the Sydney slot against 16 U.S. teams in a San Francisco Bay sail-off last month.

Soon after Brad Engel was named Maryland's 2005 Teacher of the Year in October, he began to devise a way to share the honor with his fellow teachers. With the help of his students, the Queen Anne's County high school social studies teacher has designed an online forum for children and parents to express their thanks to their favorite teachers. The program, called Thanking Educators Across Maryland, went online April 20 and collected 150 letters from people in eight counties in its first week.

In the 1960s, he created a new one-design yacht, the Etchells 22, now known as the International Etchells class.

Severn Sailing Association's annual Keelboat Regatta last weekend was a tough one. It was sailed in light to moderate breezes so shifty they caused some major upsets and highly inconsistent results in the three fleets of J/24s, Stars and Tempests.If there were a consistency award for the regatta, it would have to go to Washingtonian Rene de la Rie, winner of the five-boat Tempest class' four-race series with a second and three aces. Other class winners had much more of a struggle for the top."

About 140 one-design boats, sailing in 20 classes, occupied six racecourses between Sandy Point State Park and West River last weekend in the second annual Chesapeake Bay Olympic Classes Regatta.Although the name of the event implies that only the classes used in the Olympic Games competed, that was far from the case.The regatta also included starts for Albacores, International 5-0-5s, Lasers, Lightnings, Snipes and J/24s, as well as eight windsurfing classes. And of course, the six Olympic classes -- Europe Dinghies, Finns, Flying Dutchmen, International 470s, Solings, and Stars -- were represented.

ATHENS - Luckily for Paul Cayard, sailing can be an old man's game. At 45, the America's Cup veteran is one of the graybeards at the Olympic regatta, competing in the 17-boat Star fleet, which is scheduled to begin six days of sailing today. Only double-handed dinghy sailor Kevin Burnham, 47, is older on the U.S. team. Of the 34 Star sailors, Germany's Alexander Hagen is older by four years. Cayard's crew is Phil Trinter, a mere child at 35. Stepping from a big America's Cup yacht with lots of muscle power in the 16-member crew into a do-it-yourself 23-footer meant Cayard had to spend a lot of time in the gym in the past 18 months.
