Uncle Walter was the news for the first half of my life. And ha was the consummate sailor. I recall reading in a SAIL magazine (I think it was SAIL) about he and his wife sailing into a new harbor. He was at the helm and standing, waving with people on shore yelling, "Hello, Walter!" When hos wife rushed up from below and said they aren't saying Hello Walter, they are yelling, "LOW WATER!" He turned around to avoid running aground.
As I sit here this morning watching a lengthy tribute to his life and career, it is amazing just how much of those times I recall with him telling me about it.
"And that's the was it was..."
