    Victor Manning (Vic) died in his sleep earlier this week.
    He had been President of the International Sunfish Class Association for a number of years and supported many other sailing activities as well, especially those around Austin TX where he lived.

    I met him (and his wife Patricia) several times at regattas. Both of them very welcoming and supportive.
    Condolences to Pat; we will certainly miss Vic!

    In his memory, please be extra nice the next time you meet a sailing newbie.

    Vic and Pat were wonderful people who always supported the Sunfish Class. Deepest sympathies to Pat.
