Hundreds of young athletes pushed themselves well past their limits in the challenging BNB Hamptons Youth Triathlon in Sag Harbor on Saturday, July 14. The participants separated into their specific age groups and started the race by swimming the length of Long Beach. Then they switched to a short bike race, and eventually finished the triathlon on foot, racing to the opposite end of Long Beach, returning to the start for the final lap. The first group leaped into the water at 7:30 AM, and runners were still crossing the finish line past 9 AM. For this taxing a race, everyone should be very proud of their times.
There will be a public sale of the works of artist Beryl Bernay-Kossovskaya on Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20, from 10 AM to 4 PM at 18 Neck Path in East Hampton. Many of the diverse selection of paintings and photographs by the long-time Springs resident were inspired by her United Nations foreign correspondent assignments. Other works reflect her love of the area’s light and ambience, while some included pen-and-ink sketches of Paris, New York City, and her 1940s fashion designs.
