Writer and St. Francis YC Staff Commodore Kimball Livingston has an enviable history of writing some of the most informative, insightful and entertaining stories in the world of sailing. He wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle when they covered sailing, and has written about everything from the America’s Cup to numerous great races and great sailors around the planet for many of the world’s sailing publications. There are also several books and the movie Wind among his many credits. He’s also been dedicated to youth sailing and improving the pathway for participation for kids from all corners of society.
We always appreciate seeing sailing break into the mainstream press, and therefore we were happy to see Kimball’s story on the very accomplished Canadian Olympic Laser sailor and SailGP crew member, Sarah Douglass, published in a recent New York Times.
Kimball has been “Sailing the Bay” for decades, but his writing has carried his stories around the world, and his efforts to support participation in sailing have helped many enjoy sailing as much as he does.
