Ed Haley, BYC member since 1991 passed away on Sunday, August 12th. Ed and his wife, Nancy raced and cruised their Sloop SYZYGY.

PC Mike Mentuck remembers Ed fondly:

"Nancy and Ed Haley were the essence of what it meant to be cruising sailors. They had a great boat in SYZYGY and they really knew what they were doing! Whether sailing around locally, cruising with the BYC or off on some adventure to Labrador they were true sailors from stem to stern! Always a friendly smile or a wave whether at the Gazebo, in the launch or off the coast of Maine. Ed was pressed into Fleet Surgeon status on more than one occasion on a BYC Cruise. He will be missed by all who knew him and he and Nancy set a standard of knowledge and competence that all cruisers would be wise to emulate."

 

 

Edward M. Haley, MD, age 80, of Stoneham, formerly of Reading, died at home on August 12, 2014, following a lengthy battle with cancer. Born in Cambridge, MA; he was the son of the late Maurice L. and Catherine M. (Halligan) Haley. Ed was raised in Reading. He was a 1955 graduate of Dartmouth College and a graduate of Harvard Medical in 1957.

Ed enjoyed his professional life at Winchester Hospital for 35 years. During those years he founded the Winchester Anesthesia Associates which he served as chief for a number of years. He was very proud of this legacy which continues today.

He was an avid sailor, and with his wife Nancy, cruised the East coast from Canada to the Caribbean multiple times. He was a longtime member of the Boston Yacht Club, went on many of the club cruises, and served on the cruise committee. Ed was winner several times of the Bill Dolan Irish Trivia at the BYC St. Patrick’s Celebration. He traveled extensively to Europe, Africa and Asia. He was an excellent skier and enjoyed gardening. Reading was a lifelong passion and he was always ready for a discussion on any topic. Ed’s bucket list was long. He had many places to go and things to do. When he realized there would be an interruption; he would say “It’s was a wonderful life and I’ve had a great ride”.

Ed was the cherished husband of Nancy (Krasinski) DeCaro-Haley. He was the father of Catherine Rost of Narragansett, RI, Alison Bortone of Bristol, RI and Edward H. Haley of North Reading and stepfather of Simone Young of Traverse City, MI and Andrew J. DeCaro III of Hong Kong. He is also survived by his brother Joseph Haley of Beverly and eight grandchildren.

A Memorial Celebration will be held Friday, September 12th,, 10AM-2 PM at Bear Hill Country Club, 5 North St., Stoneham. Friends and relatives are invited. Memorial tributes may be made to MGH Development Center, c/o Cancer Center, 100 Cambridge St., Suite 1310, Boston, MA 02114. Arrangements under the direction of Anderson-Bryant Funeral Home of Stoneham.

Members,

The Boston Yacht Club is the primary host club for the ONE Regatta (aka PHRF NEs) this weekend (Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th).  There are over 80 boats registered for the event.  

If you are going to off your mooring this weekend or would be willing to allow a race boat to raft alongside it would be great a help to the waterfront staff.  If you can help - please contact the Dockmaster at dockmaster@bostonyachtclub.net as soon as possible.

Thanks,

Leo Fallon Jr. - Waterfront Chair

Ken Breen - Dockmaster

This year's on-shore host is the Boston Yacht Club.

The Sailing Heals Pursuit Race will be a pursuit type race in which the slower boats start before the
faster boats with each boat starting at an assigned time, depending of their PHRF handicap. The Organizing
