Presentation by Gordie Nash, legendary SF Bay sailboat racer (free)

Longtime Sausalito resident Gordie Nash will reflect on his many years rowing, sailing, and racing on the San Francisco Bay.  Many know Gordie as the founder of Sausalito's Funky Boat Race in 1970.  Though now defunct, the Funky Boat Race was a beloved annual event on the Sausalito waterfront, equal parts party, parade, and competition.  In 1987 Gordie started the Open Water Rowing Regatta, the Sausalito Open Water Club's annual regatta from the Sausalito waterfront out under the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Gordie is such an amazing person & boating legend - and his talk was full of local history, entertaining & from the heart! This particular Friday evening in Sausalito was warm & beautiful and the Library (which is also wonderful!), was a great venue for this documented talk. How many Libraries sport an El Toro amongst the books?!!

    I'm not home from 3 days at a Diversity & Leadership conference; it's not looking good to get there in time. I'll come if can but don't want to be a no show...

      It's not published with a length, but I suspect an hour or so, plus or minus.
