The Passing Of A Legend



This is a photo of George and me. I think it was taken at the Etobicoke Yacht Club during the 2007 J35 North Americans. George, who would have been only 94 at the time, was running one of the committee boats. What a great gentleman. This is as close to fame that I will ever get.




This is a photo of George with Sean, a CL16 racer. Sean also crewed with us on the J35 and was Arthur's and my shore crew during our LO300 campaign.




George's name appears on the Sandpiper manual. I asked George if he had owned a Sandpiper. He said, 'No'. But he must have known of the boat if he wrote the manual.

Fair winds, great sailor. God bless.




(Dave, I could not reply to your post.)
