North American Land Sailing Association
Long-time landsailor Kent Hatch passed away recently at 90 from complications related to Covid 19.
NALSA president, Mary Robinson is asking you to please ask these friends to send her any stories or memories of Kent that they would like to share. She will compile these stories into a memory book and give it to Larry Hatch for the Hatch family. Kent was a longtime supporter and President of NALSA, did a lot of race committee work, hosted many events at Smith Creek, Ivanpah Dry Lake, and other playas. He was the person behind bringing the Fed 5 to America. We would appreciate reading the stories of those who can fill in more information of those times. Kent was always welcoming to landsailors at Smith Creek, encouraging us to join in the racing and potluck dinners. Kent refused any money to help pay for the permit, though he would accept a donation for a fireworks fund. You might be surprised at how comforting such a book is for a family to read, reminding them of things their loved one said and did. And hearing some of the tales for the first time. Please have people send their memories to Mary at this email.
