Laguna Beach High School senior Liz Fletcher joined other well-wishers at a recent Good Sea Scout lunch at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club honoring Bill Ficker, the first person to win sailing’s most most awards, the America’s Cup, the International Star Class World Championship and The Congressional Cup.
Liz, who became a Sea Scout quartermaster earlier this year, described the program to the crowd of 100 people. Ficker, a supporter of youth sailing, congratulated her on her accomplishment.
Flicker was introduced by lifelong friend Seymore Beek, whose family established and runs the ferry service between Balboa Island and the Newport Peninsula.Firebrand Media LLC wants comments that advance the discussion, and we need your help to accomplish this mission.
