There will be a memorial for Tom Baffico on Sun Nov 15 from 1pm-4pm in the Chart Room at the StFYC. All friends and acquaintances of Tom are welcome especially those from the Snipe, Express 27 and Open 5.7 fleets. If you have some Tom sea stories please bring them along too. Tom started racing as a teenager on Lake Merced in San Francisco, participated in the St Francis junior program, crewed on big boats including for Tom Blackaller and then was on the UC Berkeley college sailing team. He also raced a Snipe during those years. After a long break from sailing, he started racing an Express 27 in the mid 1990s and joined the Open 5.7 fleet in the late 2000s. During this time he crewed on a variety of other race boats as well. One sailor had this to say:

He was one of the best fellow competitors in the sport because you always knew it would be a good race and back on the dock good camaraderie no matter whether he beat you or you beat him.
