Eight Bells - Don Green
Thursday, February 21st, 2019 - Kingston, ON
Sail Canada is saddened to hear the news of the passing of Don Green. This skipper was nothing short of a great sailor. He motivated his crew, he always tried his hardest, and continuously put Canadian sailing at the forefront in his Evergreen.
Aside from the 1978 Canada's Cup, he was a member of the 1979 Canadian Admirals' Cup team; an America's Cup Challenger in the 12-metre True North; an Order of Canada member; and recently inducted into the Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame on August 19th 2018.
His legacy will be sure to live on through the generations. Don leaves wife Sandy, children Sharon and Stephen, and grandchildren Michaela, Michael, Kieran and Rachel.
