Phil Ramser, one of the founders of the Harbor 20 Class, passed away peacefully on June 18th. He was surrounded by family – his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Phil was instrumental in establishment the Harbor 20 Class at Newport Harbor Yacht Club and ultimately across the country. Phil had a successful sailing career spanning over 75 years. He will be sorely missed. We all remember his kindness and generosity and his warm salutation “Sea ya!” As information becomes available about services, we will let you know.

BCYC has transitioned its charitable support from the Leukemia Society to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Orange County.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities provide overnight stays for families with sick children around the world so they can share hugs, smiles, and time together. For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine is just having family nearby.
Every Ronald McDonald House is a safe haven that provides all the comforts of home, plus the compassion and hospitality of staff, volunteers, and other families…all just steps away from the hospital.
