I crewed for Bob on his J-22 for a while when I lived in Minneapolis. I was a newly transitioned Navy officer looking to race. Bob not only taught me the finer points of racing a J-22 but also how to make a perfect Bombay Sapphire & tonic upon returning to his dock. I've always thought of you when I drink one and will always remember your thoughtfulness and graciousness both on and off the water. Raising my glass to you, skipper!
