Due to health reason,I am going to have to cancel the event. I will be going into treatment for cancer which will probably be quite time consuming.
Hopefully, I will be able to go on with the Tradewinds in January.

Good luck Rick! I hope it goes well.

I'm just now recovering from 5 weeks of daily radiation treatments in May and June, on a tumor in my neck. I lost 30 lbs, couldn't swallow anything for about 2 months, but I'm slowly getting back in shape.

I can finally eat and drink beer again!

Clear your desk, get some sleep, you will be very tired all the time and feel like crap all the time, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

If there's anything we can do for you don't hesitate to ask.

Sorry to learn about this, Rick, but I know that you have the smarts and the perseverance to handle this successfully, the same as you have done with your long sailing career, loaded with success. So, go after it and get better. You have a big advantage due to your nature and your history of accomplishment!
