The schooner Virginia
was launched and christened last week in Norfolk. A heart
warming presence among the notables attending was Gary
Jobson, one of the special invited guests at the christening.
Also, adding special words and thoughts at the christening was Bill
Pinkney, former Master of the Amistad
America. There were several local racers at the christening
Friday, including, but not limited to, Larry Bryant, Don Wade, Ben
Cuker, and Thom Thornton. And, of course
Governor Mark Warner and his wife, Lisa Collis, who actually christened the
Virginia, were top officials in attendance.
