It has been suggested by many people that I should start a blog so they can read about my sailing adventures.So grab a rum runner, put on a life jacket, and click on one of the pictures above to read short stories from my trips, look at some photos, and even watch some short video clips.
Whistles were distributed to all those participating in this weekend’s fishing tournament at Emerald Isle, NC in memory of Captain Keith.
We encourge everyone to WEAR their whistles. If you go overboard, the phone in your pocket may not work, or it may fall out. The whistle on your wrist or clipped to your clothing or life vest could save your life.
Make it home to your family. Keith did not.
- We splashed Saga about a week ago. First time she’s been in the water in years. His darling daughter, sister and brother were onboard for the launch and inaugural sail to Oriental.This blog entry is going to be selfishly about me. I had a love/hate relationship with Keith. I loved how stupidly smart he was. I loved his wicked humor. I HATED what he routinely put his family through with his idiocy. I miss him I shouldn’t have to miss him. He was a force to be reckoned with. I have never met anyone who blazed a path thru life the way he did. I just miss him. Fair winds and following seas…..
Today Kenny, Amy, Kim, David and I handed out about 450 survival whistles at the Beaufort public docks and the Emerald Isle public boat ramp.
Today is the first day of National Safe Boating Week. We give these whistles out free of charge in memory of our baby brother, Keith, who lost his life last January in a boating “accident”:
Whistles are purchased by our family and with donations made by friends, relatives, and those we meet telling Keith’s story. Many people asked today how they can make a contribution to future events. Checks may be made payable to Kelly Wyatt and mailed to P.O. Box 4481, Emerald Isle NC, 28594.
Here are some pictures from today:
- Beaufort, NC public marina, 10:00am-2:00pm
- Emerald Isle, NC public boat launch, 4:00pm-6:00pm
Saturday launches the 2015 National Sate Boating Week.
Remember…. practice safe boating: Always wear a whistle.
Another reason we give away whistles in memory of our “baby” brother:
By May 1 I hope to announce the locations of our next whistle project.
Monday, January 12 will be one year. 365 days. And each one we’ve missed you.
Here are some random photos that we used at your memorial service. No captions, and the order may be off… But it shows a little of who you were.
