sail on

Joseph “Joey” Chomyn was a promising young sailor from Johns Island, South Carolina. He was well known in youth sailing and was always a stand-up young man. Not enough good things can be said about the content of his character, and his willingness to help anyone he met. Most recently he competed at the US Sailing Junior Championships in La Salle, MI.
Tragically just two days after competing, Joey was killed in a boating accident near Lime house Bridge on the Stono River. Joey’s signature was a US Sailing team white visor that he wore almost every day. If you have lightly used visors for Joey’s family and friends.
If you think you may have one, please send it to 362 Sweetgrass Creek Road, Charleston, SC, 29412. While so tragic, it is fitting that Joey was doing what he loved before he passed. Rest well Joey, keep sailing on.
