Manhasset Tomahawks Douse Flames

On The Bay
The sailing community lost a very dear friend last month. Norman Geller, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last April, succumbed to this dreaded disease in August. Norm, who was known throughout our sailing world here on Manhasset Bay, was a member of the Port Washington YC and active in the Port Washington Library's Nautical Center. If you had the good luck to encounter Norm, usually on or near the water, he could change whatever kind of day you were having into a great day. After spending a moment with Norm, with him capturing your attention with either a good joke, or just a regular story that somehow he managed to make funny, the day would brighten and you would find yourself smiling for the rest of the day. Norm had that effect on people - his happy outlook was contagious.
