HYANNISPORT - Sen. Edward Kennedy, his wife, Victoria, and their two dogs took a sail on their boat this morning on a fine Cape Cod day.

The Kennedys, along with crewmembers, drove a golf cart down a Hyannisport pier to the schooner Mya shortly before noon.

Kennedy, who is chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, was diagnosed with a malignant glioma in his brain after collapsing in Hyannisport last May.

He went on a radiation and chemotherapy regimen after having surgery at Duke University Medical Center in June and has been working, mainly behind the scenes, to pass health care reform legislation.

A Washington, D.C., publication, The Hill, reported yesterday that Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Kennedy's brain cancer is in remission and he would return to the Senate full time in early June.

But that report was denied by Kennedy's office in a statement later yesterday.

A Boston staffer who did not wish to be named told the Times the senator continues to balance a treatment regimen with work, adding that his schedule is determined on a day-to-day basis.
