Sunny but Snow-y for Georgetown

Some chill, rain and prospects of the coldest Rose Parade in its 125 years on New Year's Day haven't heralded fair sailing in midweek, but forecasts call for a sunny shirtsleeve weekend for the nation's best young sailors for the 30th Rose Bowl Regatta at Long Beach this weekend.

After a battle with pneumonia and lung cancer, Stuie Nelson passed away quietly with his wife Judy at his side on Sunday evening in Laconia, NH. Not only a pioneer for women's sailing as a founder and the first coach of women's sailing for New England colleges and the country, Stuie was always friendly and affable in his 38 years of coaching, teaching PE and Rec Sailing at the MIT Sailing Pavilion. His spirit continues to this day as every messed up bowline knot is fondly referred to as a 'running half tangle'. With an amazing memory for birth dates and all details that others would lose in a nano-second, Stuie was truly a bionic athlete with an amazing gift of gab, too. Windsurfing, iceboating, skiing, and any fun, fast challenge was a reason to try.
