first_imgModinsaid golf was his first love upon moving to the area with his family as achild, a sport he was ready to pursue full-time when his family joined theRumson Country Club. “It’ssomething that I can do all year round and enjoy for a long time,” Modin said.“You don’t have to be super strong or athletic to have fun and be competitive.Unless you want to go to the Olympics or something.” Frigid temperatures that chill the Two River area provide the perfect stage for the club’s Frostbite races, a cold weather series that allows local laser boat captains and others from around the Northeast region to navigate a course within the Navesink River. The Monmouth Boat Club is on the Navesink River in Red Bank.

The eventis scheduled to take place Dec. 26-30, where 650 sailors ages 8 to 18 from 20countries and 28 states, will race boats like Optimists, Club 420’s and Lasers– like Modin’s – in Miami, Florida.

I’m still gettingbetter.” Modinsaid an Olympic appearance would be a dream come true, but for now his sightsare set on the revered Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta, the largestyouth event of its kind in the United States and South America. Henkel said an abundance of scenic locations, like the two rivers and the Sandy Hook Bay, are what make the area one of the best in the country to sail.

I’ve sailed in a lot of places, butthere aren’t many that match this. We’re on the Navesink today, on either sideof you are these incredible mansions. Where else can you sail and see BonJovi’s house,” Henkel said.
