Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.--Ernest Benn

Wayne Harris (1931-2013)

Wayne spent so little of his life with us. But while passing through, he shared deeply with us his love of the sea.

As a sailor, I always felt in his shadow. Maybe he wasn't much of a racer, but as a cruiser,  Wayne left me at the docks. He sailed down the West Coast, through the Panama Canal, and up along the Eastern Seaboard! And when he wasn't sailing he was managing marinas!

He was an old school gentleman: gentle, generous, gracious and full of integrity. I think his Hunter-36 was named Pleasant Way? How perfect.

Thanks to his leadership, the most popular racing fleet in our Central Coast sailing venue was founded and thrives to this day.
