Gene Adams at the 2009 Western Nationals
Many of you know (or have heard) of Gene Adams. Gene is a long-time Fleet 1 member and, up until a couple of years ago, was a major parts dealer for SJ boats of all sizes. I started sailing about 8 or 9 years ago, hooked up with Gene at a regatta in Seattle, and have been crewing with him ever since, although we didn't get out much the last couple of years due to his health.
Gene passed away earlier this week (Tuesday April 19th) having battled lung issues (as well as other health issues) for a number of months. He was one of the kindest, most patient people I've ever known, and was a great friend to me and many others in the sailing community both here and across the country. He had great stories about his many sailing adventures with the fleet and all over Puget Sound (he had owned larger boats as well) and was always willing to express his views on sailing strategy, boat maintenance and rigging, etc. in a kind and helpful way. His smile and demeanor were highly infectious and his enthusiasm for sailing made a huge difference in my life.
All of us here in Seattle are saddened by his passing. I will miss him terribly.

San Juan 21 sailors are among the most active sailors in North America. Twenty-ones can be found on the rivers of the Midwest, on the lakes from Calgary, Alberta south to Texas, the coastal mountains, lakes, and shores of both the Pacific and Atlantic.
Three regions now make up the Association: West, Midwest, and East. Each represent well in Regional Championships held each year — and in the North American Championship which rotates through each region on a three year cycle and brings together San Juan 21 sailors from across the nation!
