Sad to hear of the passing of one of our sport’s true legends, Bob Fisher. A writer of immense talent, one hell of a sailor and a guy that just loved to call bullshit on so much of the nonsense in this sport.
Especially The America’s Cup, man did he tend to just call it like he saw it. He wrote a number of articles like that for us, and we were honored to publish his contributions. Bob had a special affinity for SA and primarily through Clean, he saw us as kindred spirits.
I was stoked to spend a bit of time with him at SDYC during a Master’s Regatta in 2013, just shooting the breeze about all things sailing. A great man and likely a complete one of a kind. – ed.
