I'm surprised this hasn't been brought up here yet. Robert Gainer, Tartan34C on this board, passed away a few days ago. More info can be found here: Gainer
I met Robert briefly at the Sailnet get together at the Annapolis Boat Show this year and gave him a ride back to his hotel. What a unique individual with some wonderful viewpoints and great experiences to share.
Anyway, I thought I'd let everyone know.
