Sunday, March 18, 2018When my wife Judy, and I started our 20 year saga on board Veleda IV, karen was interested in my logs and featured many of them in GAM under the heading Pearls from the log of Veleda IV. GAM is still publishing logs from various sailors referred to as Pearls. karen herself is a pearl who has contributed much to the sailing community. Aubrey Millard

Tuesday, March 13, 2018We first met Karen Larson almost 50 years ago in the tiny GAM office on Front St. She was the quiet center of the sailing community. She knew everyone and everything that was going on in the sailing world and kept everyone connected through her wonderfully useful publication GAM. (We have never missed a copy). On her advice, we joined Queen City Yacht Club where, on her beloved island, we have been members ever since. The name, Karen Larson, will always bring back many happy memories for us and, we suspect, many others. Peter and Moya Ashby
