Labor Day Pursuit Race and Auction this Monday 9/1

On 9/1, Labor Day, there will be the Sailing Heals Pursuit Race and Auction after the race.  Registration open now on www.regattaman.com now (click) .   Please come down and enjoy the afternoon.  You don’t have to be racing to enjoy the fun!  We are looking for some additional auction items, if you have anything you’d like to donate, please let us know (we are looking for sporting event tickets, Nutcracker tickets, just to name a few ideas).  If you can donate an item, please email me.

So far we have some fun auction items so bring your family and friends!  A few of the items are:  1 week at Vail Condo Feb. 14 thru Feb 21; 1 week at New Hampshire Condo; Dock Party (you and your friends can go in on this); and 1 month parking spot at BYC (in the 3 hour spot with your name on it)!!!!  Just to name a few…….  Come on down, Gazebo will be open!

 On 9/12 we will have a “BYC” Sailing Heals Day.  We will have BYC captains only and are in need of table sponsors.  By sponsoring a table, you will be providing lunch to the VIPs (the cancer patients and their guests).  Table sponsorship is $200 per table.  You can purchase as a business, individual or go in on it with others.  Just email me and let me know if you will sponsor a table.  You can leave a check at the BYC front desk payable to Sailing Heals (to my attention)  This is a great way to contribute to a great cause as it is the BYC Official Charity and your kindness will go a long way.

 Please also note that Sailing Heals is taking Boston Bombing Survivors out on a day of healing on 9/6 and are having a post sail cocktail party.  An invitation was sent to BYC members as we are hosting.  If you would like to participate in this cocktail party, you can purchase tickets thru Sailing Heals website:  www.sailingheals.org

In Memoriam: Edward M. Haley, MD

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.
