    ^ I'm glad to hear he is still with us. Every time I see this thread I worry about him.

    Another letter, in 16 point type, winging it's way to him. Number 5 according to my files. I included some stamps.

    I'll be in NYC next week, so that should give me something to write about.

    So this evening it was his arm - swollen and painful.

    It's a difficult situation - not envisioning an attractive future, not able to make an exit. Unknow number of years treading water.

    Keep calling.

    Dear friends,

    I've just learned that Jamie passed away Monday night.
    He'd had a rough few days and was ready to go, and then did so peacefully.

    The vague plan for the moment is to simply inter his ashes now, but then have some sort of celebration of his life in the summer.
    I'll post whatever information comes to me in that regard.

    I'll remember him smiling up at me from the cockpit of Uncas, always.

    Darn Iíve been offline for a bit. Sad news indeed. I just saw a note that SV Airlie has either arrived or is about to arrive in Nova Scotia. Iím not sure where I saw that, maybe on the NS Schooner association fb page. Fair winds Jamie.

    eta: she is expected to arrive November 18th according to the association.

    I want to thank everyone who mailed cards, made calls and brainstormed about how to help and support Jamie. Many the vivid memories - some sweet, some quintessentially Jamie-esque. Those of us who personally knew him will never forget those.

    May his spirit rest in peace among those who loved him.

    I'm so very sorry to hear this. He was quite the character and I enjoyed him. I hope his family was prepared.

    Very sad, and sadly inevitable.

    Not that I knew Jamie, but it very much sounds like he'd had enough. I'd like to have heard some more details of his round-Europe tour of his youth.

    Im reading this with tears in my eyes, my heart is broken. I was looking forward to my Friday call with him, now I feel horrible about not being diligent enough to keep calling and not getting caught up with my life drama. We never know how long we have.

    Jamie will always be my Captain, one of my greatest sailing adventure was sailing with him and Steven and Matt up to the WBS in Newport and live posting it all on the WBF. He might have been a curmudgeon but he was an honest and gentle soul, and a wonderful host aboard Uncas.

    I will always remember him like this



    Fair winds my friend and my Captain.

    Life is short, and the end is unfair, but his seems a life well spent.

    I met Jamie and sea dog a long time ago at Lefty's party after Mystic. Glad I did. Thanks everyone for keeping an eye on him in his final days.

    Sad news. Thanks so much to all who made his final days a little less lonely. I took an overnight train to Baltimore to sail with him to Newport in 2005. He was a most hospitable captain, we had quite an adventure.

    When we arrived in Newport we pulled up to the dock and there were two guys there talking and they offered to grab our dock lines. The two guys were Carl Cramer and Matt Murphy - the publisher and editor of WoodenBoat magazine.

    Rest in peace, Jamie.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.
