My dear friend Ray, I’m sorry I replied you many times but the emails were returned. So I post here as you may have a chance to see. Please reply me.I’m so happy to have your email here! I often remembered that you invited me a dinner at home. I met Rob there. I knew I made the circumnavigation because of You, Lynn, Charlie, Suzanne and other friends who helped me and encouraged me. I feel very sorry to see your wife  Lynn and Charlie, Suzanne are past away. I didn’t know that. So you are now 88 years old and still flirting  with learning to soar in a glider. Yes I really would like you to send me the letters after share them with Rob. May I visit you when I come to San Francisco next time? I went to Oakland and Alameda this April when I attended a boat show at Jack London Square.

Please take care of yourself.

My company phone in California is 669 777 8011.


IQC, instructor qualification clinic at Yokosuka base

IQCs are frequently held at Osaka and Yokosuka in Japan by an ASA international instructor evaluator Yoh Aoki.

ASA Sailing Instructor clinics test existing skills and knowledge while teaching a structured curriculum and proven presentation techniques. ASA certified sailing instructors have proven they measure up to a national standard which is used by more than 90% of the commercial sailing schools in the country. Take the challenge and attend an ASA Instructor Qualification Clinic (IQC).
