Jim DeWitt Memorial Service

Last week we shared the news of celebrated marine painter Jim DeWitt’s passing on Saturday, November 19. In response to sailors who have asked about a memorial service, it is anticipated a service will take place in February. We will share details as they become available.

    Thanks Monica
    Jimmy was my Boss at the sail loft, and a true friend. His beautiful painting hangs on my wall, and I feel very fortunate to have it.

    Jim and Peter Sutter are classic leaders in sailmaking and encouraging sailors. We met up with Peter in Micronesia 1990 who’d say “every day is Saturday” out there cruising. Jim gave us some great advise and great sails on a previous bay boat. I hope to find some of his art work!

A Sweet Day on the Bay
When there's breeze, the winter remains one of the best times to sail in California. There was just enough this weekend to make Blue Friday or any day a good day to be on the Bay.
