It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that Vic Manning, past US Sunfish Class President, passed away last night of a heart attack.

Vic has been one of the Class' strongest supporters in too many ways to mention on both the international and local scenes. His love for the Class and its members knew no bounds.

He was always there with a smile and a willingness to help with whatever needed done. As we sail and see the sunshine sparkle off the water, we will know that Vic's spirit is with us forever. He will be so missed.

There will be a memorial service for Vic in Austin, TX, on January 15. As soon as more details become available we will share what we know.

Please join us in a prayer for Pat Manning and her family who lost someone so very special.
