It's with great sadness that I report that Dick passed away on October 15.
His contributions to the sport of sailing are well described in the link provided in the previous post.
May Dick sail on forever, now united with his spouse Linda.

Oh, my... :( and only three weeks after being awarded by ILCA.

My father bought Dick's original "Laser Sailing" book in 1976, and I still keep that same copy at hand, if not for else than checking historical facts about the class and the boat. A big but regrettably belated thank you to Dick for writing it.

His decline in health became public a few weeks ago. I think the award was rushed through to avoid making it posthumous. Long overdue in any case.
