Tribute to Tim Carter - no he's not dead, just a 'overserved&#

Recommended Posts

Jim Sears, local legend in SoCal, put together a tribute to Tim 'Timbo' Carter from Alamitos Bay YC. Timbo has been pivotal in the growth and success of the Viper Class in SoCal. His efforts led to this years huge growth in the fleet, 25 boats, at Long Beach Race Week.

 

When Jimbo polled the 25 owners showing up if they'd like to pitch in some $$ for a gift and a 'fine' bottle of Rum, 25 wholeheartedly said yes.

 

After a fine day of racing yesterday, Timbo was presented with a gifts of rum, sailing gear and gratitude.

 

Timbo's done more for sportboating in the West than most others I know. Thanks Tim. You're a good man and a hell of a sailor.

This guy makes every VIper sailor, crew or owner, feel welcome and part of the family. Well deserved. Timbo, you are the man.

I'm not sure Tim sails the right boat (ok ok I'm kidding), but he is a terrific guy. Vipers are coming out of the woodwork these days, every fleet needs someone with Mr. Carter's energy and enthusiasm.

 

Cheers,

Absolutely right. He ventured to the east coast twice in the past year and somehow managed to do the same here, meeting people for the first time.

 

His quiet energy and enthusiasm are undoubtedly the #1 reason the Viper class at LBRW was double the size of the next biggest class.

 

Thank you Timbo, keep up the great work!
