Scott's Ashes laid in Lake Michigan
Toast by Tom Elsen Remembering Scott Graham
At the 2016 Class Championship, we had two salutes to Scott Graham. Scott was one of the two designers of our beloved S2 7.9. Scott passed away on August 16, 2016, 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.
After the final race on Thursday Scott's ashes were laid in the water. It was Scott's wish to race one more time. He was able to do a practice race and 3 races down below on Matros. Before his ashes were laid, many kind words were relayed over the race course on the race committee's radio channel. Later that evening at the class banquet, three toasts were given by Tom Elsen.
A Salute Scott Graham
