Walter Cronkite, Sailor. R.I.P.

One of the highlights of my career as executive director of the American Sail Training Association was sailing on the Schooner Adirondack in NY Harbor for several hours with Walter Cronkite, his girlfriend, Rick Scarano and the crew. It was a real thrill to spend time with an American icon and passionate sailor. I love this photo that I took of him at the helm in his USCGC EAGLE hat. He truly loved sailing and the sea. It was an honor and privilege to sail with him.

Here’s a link to my original post on the ASTA blog. (Sailing with an American Icon)
