Dear Star Sailors,

We have had some Officer changes recently that you should be aware of.

In South America:
It is with sincere regret that we announce the resignation of Alberto Zanetti as 2nd Continental Vice President for South America. Alberto has been the guy in Argentina who has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the Star alive and thriving in Argentina. A fierce competitor on the race course, Alberto has been a leader on shore as well. His insight and advice will be missed but we are sure it will still be available for the asking!

Alberto, thank you for everything you have done and are doing. We know that you will still be an active supporter of the Class on the water and off!

And now…
Let us introduce Torkel Borgstrom as your new 2nd Continental VP in South America. Torkel is no newcomer to Star sailing but has surely increased his presence in most recent years. Torkel works for North Sails in Buenos Aires and is a regular on the race course in Argentina and now Miami! Torkel is a new face in the leadership of South America.

Welcome Torkel, we look forward to having you on board the leadership of our Class!

In North America:

It is with regret that we announce the retirement of Rick Peters as the 2nd Continental Vice President for North America. Rick has served this position since 2010 but finds his family and business do not afford him the time to continue in the role. To benefit the Class Rick would rather see someone who has the time and energy take over. Rick will still be active with the Class and we are sure to see him on the course and feel his presence behind the scenes.

Thank you Rick for your service to the Class. It is much appreciated.

And now…
Let me introduce Dave Caesar as the person to fill Rick’s position. Dave is a Life Member of our Class and hails from Canada. Dave sails out of the Seneca Lake Fleet and is most often seen on the race course with Arthur Anosov. Dave has been a member for a long time and has strong feelings for the Class and the future of the Class. He is one of those ‘understated’ and quiet guys—you are not sure you remember who he is until you see his face!

Welcome Dave! We look forward to having you on board as a leader for North America!
