Major transitions at Tabor.
i’ve been following some of the major changes at Tabor, they are in the middle of a search for a new head of school, and apparently Captain Gail has retired, and the boat sits with no captain and apparently right now no mission or direction while the Covid virus is throwing the entire school into frantic efforts to assure student safety in the coming school year.
do any of us know what’s going on with the boat? Do we have any recent readings from the director of athletics or the director of the Maritime programs who would give us a hint on what is going on with the Tabor Boy.
Right now I’m not getting much feedback from the few contacts I have, but this is a really trying a difficult time for the whole school. Bro Russell class of 62Former navigator

I would also like to add my note of sympathy and assure my lifelong friendship with Tim, who's passing also resulted in my refreshing my long-term friendship with Tim's sister Dee.
When I was a senior at Tabor in 1962, Tim and I charted a little schooner over the summer to do Buzzards Bay and hopefully hit Provincetown. Or the one leg of our voyage Dee and her college roommate, she was a freshman in college then, came along and we had an absolutely wonderful week being very bad people. I should clarified, none of that resulted in any real fooling around, after all they were college girls and we were just high school seniors.
It was a wonderful trip, part of my lifelong friendship with Tim. after Tim's funeral, my wife and I made the track to Dee's family orchard in Vermont, we stayed a few days, and toured their very extensive apple orchard farm. Bro Russell class of 62
