From Stig Osterberg:
Our dear friend, Admiral Bob McClinton, passed away early this afternoon of congestive heart failure. The Admiral was the owner and skipper of the Sequim J-105 “America”, and “Intrepid” and “Weigh to Go” before that. We could always count on him to participate in our Midsummer regatta. Bob was loved and respected by everyone who knew him, and a space as crew on his boat was hard to get as he was such a gifted leader of people. He had only learned of this heart condition this morning, and had immediately phoned his entire sailing crew to request that they all meet for lunch. He unfortunately died before the gathering.
He was one of a kind, and we will miss him. His leadership and enthusiasm inspired all of us to be better and showed us what a “can do” attitude was all about.
