Bill Shay

Bill Shay was practically synonymous with the yacht “Carina” having sailed with the Nye family starting in 1956. Bill slept forward in the 1957 Fastnet race; which “Carina” won finishing when most of the fleet dropped out.

I met Bill in 1969 when I sailed on “Carina” in the Trans-atlantic race to Ireland. He was a great shipmate always ready with a can do attitude.
