Eight Bells: Bjorn Johnson:
Bjorn Johnson, a consummate Corinthian Yachtsman who gave generously and tirelessly of his time and knowledge to the sport of sailing, has crossed the bar. He was 62 years of age.
Bjorn was a proud member of the Cruising Club of America, New York Yacht Club, Storm Trysail Club, Atlantic Highlands YC (past commodore) and the North American Station. He was past chair of the Bermuda Race Organizing Committee and also served as the leader of the BROC’s sub-committees for inspections committee, sponsorship, and race-entry management.
