Passing of Virgina Getty Nelson (Barrett's mom)

Barrett's mother, Virginia Getty Nelson passed away on Saturday, November 24 at 10:30 AM at the age of 102. She would have been 103 on December 7. Oddly enough, Barrett had a hole in one at 11:30 AM eastern time. Virginia must have said "do me proud son" as she went up to be with Edward and Barrett's brother Philip. She will be greatly missed but at peace now.

Team Texana's Big Mac

By Dallas Johnson

Team Texana sailing the Chicago MacSeason seven for Team Texana’s Schock 35 out of Bayfield WI. It’s been a long trip. The oldest kid, Austin Johnson, was 10 years at the beginning. At times it’s been like a version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, at other times a Chevy Chase Family Vacation movie, once in a blue moon it’s been that scene from Wind - pick whichever scene comes to mind, we’ve seen them all.

Racing hard has always been important, sailing well has always been the goal. Results have always been second, but we’ve been lucky more than we deserve. Seven years of Raceweek, ATI’s, racing and cruising the Great Lakes and Atlantic with no major boat damage or injuries has been my goal as skipper. Although I should note we are regulars at the Ashland ER thanks to bikes, fish hooks, skateboards, sunburns, and one emergency appendicitis. Bayfield can be a tough town.   Read more, click here.
