January 26 ,2011:Erika
(Eberhardt)Anderson ex-chef S/y Astral, under Capt. Tony
Perry, and ex-chef S/Y Tigris, under Capt. Richard Le Cayne?(spelling),
sailed over the bar last night at midnight. The angels took her
from her pain at 55 years young. Leaves behind a wonderful husband,
Paul Anderson, her father John Eberhardt and brother John. Jon is a "lion" of the Brotherhood in Europe who weathered
through the loss of his wonderful wife Brenda and now his daughter
Erika to a terrible disease. Jungle Jane has put together a set
of photos and memories of the years she has known Erika., She and
Scott Smith stayed with the Eberhardts in 1985 after a Zaff on the
Isle of Wright and has remained in touch with the family ever since,
and then with Paul in later years. We all have very fond memories
of attending Erika and Paul's wedding aboard ship during the Chilean
Zaf. We all send our condolences to Jon and Paul.

Sam Britton sails away. Sam was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer
almost three years ago, and had wrestled with that disease until
his passing. Most will agree that Sam was the embodiment of the
Brotherhood of the Coast. He was former Captain of the Sun Coast
table, and served as National BOC Captain from 1998 to 2002. During
the four years of his national captaincy, Sam visited many BOC “ports”
all over the world, and always represented the USA Tables with wonderful
professionalism and sincerity. He made many BOC acquaintances, and
all who had the pleasure to know Sam respected his wisdom, insight,
intelligence and friendship.Sam was 80 at the time of his passing
