This morning was the quiet morning chosen for our low-key memorial for Vin by christening the boat in his name.

As we know would have been acceptable to Vin, a small group consisting of Angela, Andrew, Tali, Judy, Denis, Michelle and Eli simply gathered at the pontoon and poured a bottle of Cooper’s Pale Ale on Vin’s bow, finishing with a few words from Angela, reminding us of Vin’s dedication to Sailability, and the people we stand for.

A sad morning, reminding us of the shortness of life, and making the most of what we have.
