May Member Spotlight

This month, we’d like to shine the spotlight on Peter Coggins of New Jersey, sailor, T34C enthusiast, mentor and senior electronics engineer with the United States Army where Peter gave 35 years of solid, impressive service to our country.  That official side of Peter’s life has never intruded on the smiling, wise and wise cracking sailor that so many of us have come to love. 

A sailor all his life, Peter has owned many sailboats and delivered many more for customers up and down the coast.  Perhaps the boat Peter held most dear was Frolic, a Tartan 34 Classic sloop (Hull #313) which he once contemplated converting to a yawl.  An enthusiastic review Peter wrote about the T34C in the early 70s strongly influenced many of us to become one of the 526 T34C owners. 

Never one to do things half way, Peter gathered information about all of the 526 boats and their owners and compiled it into the “Coggins Roster”. This roster was a great help during the formation of the International Tartan 34 Classic Association.

It would be easy and very pleasant to spin out a few of Peter’s famous sea stories, but neither space nor censors would allow for such a compendium.  So I will close this brief note of thanks and admiration for Peter Coggins with a widely shared wish from all of us for many more happy years in retirement.

Warmest Regards, Deane (Dino) Holt
