Joe on the helm of Breeze

SBYC extends our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of longtime member and Past Commodore, Joe Bozick, who passed away on July 28th.

He and his wife Chris, also a Past Commodore, have been members of SBYC since 1987. Joe served as Commodore in 2014 and both he and Chris have been active volunteers, participants and supporters of club activities over their 32 years as members. Joe was instrumental in SBYC’s support of Footloose Sailing Association, an organization Joe actively supported as a volunteer.

Joe was a passionate, talented and well-known racer in the Puget Sound sailing community. He had a long history of sailboat racing wins and his skill and competitiveness on the race course kept the fleet competitive. He was a great friend and mentor to others.

Joe and Chris enjoyed many summers cruising on their sailboat, Breeze, and were familiar faces at cruise events. A talented guitar player, Joe frequently played for sing alongs in the evenings. Joe will be deeply missed. 

SBYC has made a contribution to Footloose Sailing Association in Joe’s honor.
