David A. Hazlehurst – In Memoriam

David Hazlehurst David Hazlehurst - US Masters

David was well known at FBYC for his involvement in the Laser Fleet and beyond.  David was our fleet captain in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and chaired our Chesapeake Laser Masters Championship during those years including the US Laser Masters that we held in 2000.  A quick clip of him from that event.  David would serve numerous years on the FBYC board and was Commodore in 2003.  Afterward he was a champion for volunteerism at the club.

David enjoyed traveling on the Masters circuit around the country and even sailed in the Masters World Championships in Chile (1997), Austrailia (1999), Mexico (2000) and Ireland (2001).  He won a number of awards at FBYC including the Piankatank Award, Matthew Fontaine Maury, and Race Committee Trophies.

Alain reflected “He might not have been there at the start of the laser fleet [at FBYC], but he was the one who really made it what it was.”

David later moved into bigger boats sailing on his Dehler 34 sailing in FBYC’s PHRF fleet.

From FBYC and the masters sailors who attend the Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters – he will be missed.
