JOHN SOHN: Long-time Active Sailor with the GYC
We are saddened by the death of John Sohn. John was a member of GYC for many years. He raced his Y-Flyer at club races as well as at sailing regattas at Lake Lemon and other venues. After he retired from racing he remained active until just a few years ago by serving on the Protest Committee where his knowledge about the racing rules resolved many protests. He was a valued and well-respected member of GYC, and he will be greatly missed. Our sympathy is extended to his wife, Jane, his children, Brent, Dan, and Suzanne, and to other members of his family.
