Tom Ling was a fierce H-18 sailor. He was competitive on the race course and friendly on shore. I used to dread being in front of him on the downwind leg as he had perfected the "snake wake" technique. He sailed H-16's, H-18's and Hobie 33 when I knew him. We sailed as competitors and as team mates on the various boats. I have many, many happy memories of how he lived his life. I am fortunate to have been a part of it.

Sail on Tom!
