Claiborne YoungIt was a sad day, Saturday, June 14, 2014.Ā  Claiborne Young and a closeĀ lifetime friend were taking a leisurely ride on their motorcycles;Ā it wasĀ a beautiful late spring North Carolina afternoon.Ā An automobile drifted into theĀ wrong lane and Claiborne wasĀ unable to avoid the vehicle.Ā  He died laterĀ SaturdayĀ evening fromĀ injuries sustained in the accident.Ā 

Last week, Claiborne laid out his new plans forĀ “The Salty SoutheastĀ Cruisers’ Net”Ā in preparation for the Fall cruising season. As we move forward we will endeavorĀ to be trustworthy stewards of what Claiborne and Karen Young were so passionate about and keep you informed each step of the way. Without yourĀ loyal support of our sponsors and without your use of theĀ website, Ā thereĀ would be noĀ “Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net.”Ā 

So please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation for your loyalty andĀ for the many kind expressions we’ve received directly and through the manyĀ forums. Claiborne has joined his “first rate first mate” now andĀ our teamĀ will beĀ faithful stewards of their dream and what they built and left to us all.
