Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

LARRY MARCUS REMEMBERED IN THE THIRD ANNUAL MARCUS CUP LANDLUBBERS RACE THIS SUNDAY
NOBODY FROM SALTAIRE IN THE LAST FIFTY YEARS CAN FORGET LARRY MARCUS
THREE TIME CLUB COMMODORE; CC SAILOR; FRIEND OF ALL; ONE OF THE ALL TIME SALTAIRE GOOD GUYS
Picture by Dan Gallagher: Larry Marcus, Susan Marcus, Victor Kovner, and Ed Koch, 1976 (?)
SUNDAY IS THE THIRD ANNUAL MARCUS MEMORIAL LANDLUBBERS RACE
Skipper's Meeting 12:30
Race begins at 1PM -
This the 3rd annual Marcus Cup Race - It was instituted after Larry died in May, 2007
The last two years the weather has been great and the sailing was terriffic. Afterwards we usually sit around on the deck and have a few beers - its been a really nice tribute to a man so many people knew and admired.
Lets have a great time in his memory-- that's how Larry would have wanted it.
Dan's photos are amazing, but the last photo really seems to capture Larry Marcus, a truly wonderful man.
