||Preliminary 2014 Offshore Results Posted
|Our good friend and ECSA Rear Commodore, Linc Schoenberger passed away on May 19, 2014 from a short illness. Linc has impacted all of us with his humor, insight, passion, kindness and strength with which he faced this past year.
Linc raced his Wylie Cat 30, ‘One Up’, at local and national regattas. He won his class at Block Island and Key West Race Weeks. He was a very significant contributor to both the ECSA Board of Governors and the ECSA Handicap Council on which he served for many years. He was the driving force behind ECSA’s online membership and handicapping system which was instituted long before such systems became popular. Linc was also a member of Cedar Point Yacht Club, Fayerweather Yacht Club, Windjammers Sailing Club and Off Soundings Club. Most important - e was an all-around gentleman and nice guy. He will be greatly missed!
Thank you Linc for the numerous contributions you made to make sailing better for all of us!
