To: Our esteem Whitby/Brewer companions & shipmates:

More than a year ago, we realized that we had lost much of our physical strength and were in the process of losing our agility... It was the fear of having an accident that we decided to sell MENEHUNE. Throughout our boating years, we've had a good safety record with " blood, no broken bones, and no falls overboard..."

Quite reluctantly, MENEHUNE was placed on the market in Oct 2011. Truly we thought it would take a year or two to sell. Much to our surprise, she sold about 2 weeks a very nice couple who live on the South shore of Long Island. This places us in the category of being "ex" Whitby owners....

While we will not abandon the Whitby Brewer Sailboat Assn, within the next month, or two, we think it is time to pass the torch. It is our desire that the forthcoming rendezvous will be the last for us to "sponsor".

To make the transition seamless, we will do our best to see that the 2012 rendezvous goes smoothly, and that the new regime gets off to a running start. For this to happen, we seek your kind support and cooperation in having a business meeting (at the 2012 Rendezvous) to choose our successor(s).


John & Mary

It is with mixed feelings that I offer condolences and congratulations on the sale of MENEHUNE. Having made the move ourselves just last November the feelings of 'bittersweet' are still fresh with us. I know that she held many wonderful memories and experiences for both you and Mary.

Knowing that your boat will be cared for by new and excited owners is a wonderful thing, knowing that MENEHUNE is bound for new horizons...

You have some pretty big shoes that are needing filling there sir! Hopefully someone with your dedication and enthusiasm will be stepping up to the task.
