Great Lakes Sailors- Skip Boston Dies
I just read in H2O Notes that Skip Boston has died. Great Lakes sailors, especially those around Detroit and Lake St. Clair, will recognize Skip as leader of Boston Sails since the death of his father Howard.
I first saw Skip at the finish of an MORC race from Port Huron to Alpena, he won that race sailing a Morgan 27. I think that was in 1970 or 71, I guess the year the Morgan 27 was new would nail that down. I was crewing on a Cal 29, I believe Skip beat us by about two hours.
Skip was the same age I am -- 67 -- Time Marches On.
