The following announcement was made today, August 18, 2005 in the sailing e-newsletter Scuttlebutt. Skip Boston was the force behind Boston Sails, a sail loft in Holland Michigna and other cities that played a significant partnership role with S2 in the introduction and roll-out of the S2 7.9 and 9.1 Meter designs.

It may also interest some of you to know that Skip helped to campaign my boat (hull 2) in S2's early forays into MORC Championship racing.

Charles A. (Skip) Boston died on August 16. He was 67. Beloved husband of Judy Templin 40 years; dear father of Michael Boston, Diana Lee Boston-Meijer (Robert), and Veronica Coger (Stacy); dear brother of Martha Youstra (John), Nancy Peltier (Ray), William (Spike) Boston (Alice), Sue McMahon (Michael), Kay Wyszynski (Ed), and Julie Boston. There are five grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Skip touched the lives of countless numbers of sailors and was responsible for improving the performance or cruisability of yachtsmen all over the world. Fond memories of Skip can be shared with his family by emailing Michael
