It is with great sadness to share the passing of Scott Graham, one of the two designers of our beloved S2 7.9. Scott passed away on Tuesday August 16, in Grand Rapids, MI, after a long battle with bone marrow cancer. Those who met Scott at the 2014 CCR in Holland realized how great of a person he was. Scott was humbled by how strong the S2 7.9 class still was after designing the boat over 35 years ago. Scott's family said that he did not wish for a visitation or service to be preformed.The family has asked that any wishes or stories be left on the sign in page of his obituary. You may view his obituary here.

Fleet 29 in Lake Walenpaupack, PA
Most S2 7.9 sailors have heard of the 7.9 fleets in Holland, Racine, Nashville and Lake Minnetonka. However, most do not know that we have a fleet in Lake Walenpaupack, PA. Lake Walenpaupack is in Northeastern Pennsylvania, 25 miles East of Scranton, PA. Lake Walenpaupack is 13 miles long with an average depth of 25-30ft and is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. Fleet 29 calls Lake Walenpaupack home with 6 S2 7.9s currently on the lake. Most are members of the Paupack Sailing club. After every race the sailors meet at Ironwood Point Marina for a picnic. The Paupack Sailing club was founded in 1997 by a group of cruisers who were looking for an excuse to get together at least every other week. Over the years the small group of sailors in the club has fostered a great deal of camaraderie between them. One of the members, Stef Seeuwen, has been a big supporter of the S2 7.9 Class. Stef makes parts for the rudder and also other items for the 7.9 in his machine shop. It is great to see fleets of S2 7.9s throughout the country and Canada.
Would you like your fleet featured on the S2 7.9 website? If so, tell us about your fleet and send a few pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
