In remembrance of Steve, a fellow sailor, a 'big kid' and a lover of adventure. I bought his little sailboat "Ziji" from him over a decade ago, and through the process got to know Steve. It was my first boat, I was a bit overwhelmed and Steve was quick with encouragement and a pat on the back; he shared some of his adventures and misadventures with 'Ziji' and we had a some laughs. There was good energy with Steve and good energy with Ziji. I've since sailed Ziji up and down the coast of Nova Scotia and all the way to Florida....Ziji has been a fantastic and magical little boat that has seen me through some incredible adventures. Steve was responsible for Ziji's namesake which connotes 'light', 'brilliance', 'confidence', 'dignity' and it indeed these qualities seemed to have been imbued into the spirit of the boat. Even my email address, carries this word passed on by Steve, and so it is with gratitude and fond memories that I thank Steve for bringing Ziji into my life. Fairwinds Steve!
My very best wishes to his family,
