Edwin A. ?Ned? Shuman, Navy aviator and POW, dies at 82 - The Washington Post

Edwin A. ‘Ned’ Shuman, Navy aviator and POW, dies at 82

"Capt. Shuman, an accomplished sailor, won the 1979 Transatlantic Race from Marblehead, Mass., to Ireland, and he was the skipper of the 54-foot ocean racer Alliance during the disastrous 1979 Fastnet race, in which 15 yachtsmen were killed in a treacherous storm in the Irish Sea. Only 85 of 303 boats — including the Alliance — managed to complete the race.

His memberships included the Golden Eagles, an elite aviation organization, and several local and international yacht clubs, including the Annapolis Yacht Club and the Storm Trysail Club."
