Remembering Ken Hopkins - Highlander Sailor at LNYC from 1989 to 2010
Ken’s daughter, Debbie Probst, recently contacted us to let us know that her dad passed away on August 29th. Ken moved to Statesville from Ohio in 1989 and joined LNYC with his very distinctive light green Highlander #333. He loved to sail and traveled to many of the annual Highlander Class events, easily making friends wherever he went. He will probably be remembered most fondly for not wearing a shirt when he sailed - even when the weather was not that warm! Ken moved away to live with family in 2010 and announced his retirement from sailing in 2012.
Debbie has asked that we raise a glass to honor Ken during our upcoming Pipers/Nationals event at LNYC. We will be having a short informal gathering immediately following the Competitors Meeting that is scheduled for 4.30 p.m. on Saturday night, October 20th. If anyone has photos or anecdotes they would like to share, please contact Sue Rykens at email@example.com. Debbie will try to be with us that night, as she really wants people to know how much the Highlander Class and its members meant to her dad.
