With sadness I'm passing on this news that Bob Bachelder (AKA Bikini Bob)
has passed -- Bob was a local sailor at Larkspur for many years.
Bob was an elderly sailer who sailed into his early eighties.
He built the bench we all sat on and the steps to get to the rigging area
and the wind direction flag pole and put markers on the obstacles in the
sailing area.
My condolences to his family and friends.
I'm glad to have had him as a sailing buddy and friend.
RIP Bob

Bummer.
A cool guy and an inspiration.
Even saw him kayaking after he stopped windsurfing.

Hi Mike, Just saw this. Sad to hear. Sigh, one less Bob to keep track of by nickname. He was always engaging and a real Larkspur icon.

Hope you are doing well, I miss sailing Larkspur believe it or not.
