A Sail with Courtney

My wish for the New Year, A Sail with Courtney.

We are organizing a sail in rally/rendezvous on Saturday August 28th in Racine, WI. We would love to have you join us if possible. If you cannot make it to the rendezvous we would still love to have you join us on that date in honoring Courtney’s memory where ever you are, and those of other victims of breast cancer, and to make sure that she is never forgotten.

As many of you know Bubb’s (Mike) daughter Courtney lost her tragic battle with breast cancer, a year ago last September, at a very young age. http://www.anything-sailing.com/memo...ight=forgotten I was very touched by Courtney’s story when Mike was so generous to share it with us all. The thread was titled, “My Wish for the New Year, One More Sail with My Daughter.”http://www.sailnet.com/forums/off-to...more-sail.html If you have not read it, you owe it to yourself to do so. You will not be the same after you do.

As the “In Memory of Courtney” thread says, Courtney was afraid she would be forgotten. No one that age should have to worry about something like that, and it’s a thought that really touched me and has stuck with me. While I couldn’t do anything to help Courtney, I think we ALL can do something to make sure she is NOT forgotten.

Although i have been a member of Sailnet for several years, I only started participating in the forums last year. It was just shortly after Courtney passed. I became curious about the references to Courtney I would see from time to time, so a few months ago I did a search. I came upon the thread you mention "My wish for the New Year, One More Sail with My Daughter" I started to read the thread and became more and more amazed at what I was reading. The compassion of the sailnetters, the love shown by all, the strength exhibited by Bubb, not to mention his courage and generosity in sharing this with the people on Sailnet. I also began to know somthing about Courtney, a person I had never met, but who was obviously a testatment to the spirit. I was moved by her courage and determination, her selflessness in trying to help others around her. I t is obvious that she was a very special person and I wished to have known her. After reading that thread, I wanted to say somthing. I wanted to let Bubb, and the others who were with her, in body and spirit, during that difficult period, that I understood what the references were all about, what they meant, why they were important, but I did not know how. I felt awkward somehow to all of a sudden start a new thread that tried to say.."hey, I getit, and thanks, and I am sorry for your loss, and ,well I didn,t know what to say . So I just decided to say nothing, but everytime I saw those refernces to her I would remembered too. Everytime I would go outside and look at the stars, I would think, out there is a star that belongs to a very special lady. Thanks for giving me this oportunity to express myself. God Bless Courtney and Bubb, heres to you, I don't think I need to tell you why. Rick

That was a very nice thought T34C. I still get goose bumps when I think about all of this. I just reread most of the thread and it's amazing how one situation got all of us involved in a forum with one purpose in mind...to never forget Courtney. Yes, my eyes are teary after reading this again. It's a great reminder how life can be quickly taken away from us. Courtney, you have taught us much with your courage. You will never be forgotten. As we enter 2010, Bubb and Courtney....I remember you both, will try to not take life for granted, count my blessings and appreciate the people who surround me. Be good.

Ray

Sometimes timing is everything. I just met bubb 2 hours ago. Sailhog, Tim, and he pulled in a couple of slips down. I had to drive into town for an errand. As I walked past their vessel I looked up, and saw a huge orange moon coming over the horizon. I stopped as I stepped aboard, and gave Courtney a thought. I looked at the moon, and smiled as I stepped inside. I turned on the computer, and here's this thread. She gave me inspiration, and from now on every orange moon will belong to her. .......i2f

I would love to see this become an international event where we all, no matter where we are, take some time on that day for a Sail with Courtney. If you can't sail on that day, just take a minute to remember her and maybe say a prayer for everyone that is fighting their own battle with that terrible disease.

T - this is a great idea. Well done dude.

Sailing with Bubb and his son, and meeting his wife was honestly a huge, huge honor for me. I truly admire and respect all of them - and understand now a bit more how special Courtney was through their lives.

God bless you guys - and if I can't make it to WI, I'll definitely remember her, and say a prayer for all the fighters.

I think that is a great idea and I'm in. Can you PM Bubb and maybe ask him if there is a day that he would recommend? Her birthday perhaps? or did you have any thoughts on it already?

I was shooting for a date that was near the anniversary of her passing while keeping to the good weather side of the calander. Settled on the weekend prior to Labor Day weekend.
