Industry mourns noted Long Island sailor

Stephen W. Moore, a sailmaker who worked with Hard Sails, North Sails and UK, died Oct. 22 in a hospice, four days after his 66th birthday.

In his junior days, Moore was the outstanding junior sailor on Long Island Sound, winning the Clinton M. Bell Trophy three times with crew Peter Rugg, according to sailing.scuttlebutt.com.

Thereafter, as Long Island Sound sailors know so well, he became a top-notch helmsman and navigator on boats large and small, from his IC dinghy to many an ocean racing boat.

“Through the 35 years of our Carter 39 Blaze and then our Express 37, Lora Ann, Steve was our tactician,” Richard du Moulin wrote in an obituary. “Always grumbling at anyone within earshot, Steve pushed us all hard. He had a great sense of humor and an uncanny ability to write humorous songs.”

Ten years ago Moore had triple-bypass surgery when he was also diagnosed with diabetes.

There will be a service for Moore in December at Manhasset Bay Yacht Club in Port Washington, N.Y.
