In Public, Stories

Sue Dumont has written a second fascinating Founder Profile, this time about founding members Don and Alicia Baxter, currently our longest time members, with their membership number of R-0008.  To read her account of Don and Alicia’s life, more details about the beginnings of the Club, and the building of the original docks in the 1970s (appropriate to visit this in light of the new F Dock project in the immediate future), click this link: captain-don-baxter-mm-profile-2019

Note that there is an old write-up about the building of the first docks, with more of the photos in Sue’s article, on our website at this link:  https://www.saltspringsailing.ca/History/float_building.html.  There are several ways to view the old photos from that page and they are a bit larger than in Sue’s article.
