Memorial planned for noted Florida sailor


Family and friends of sailing industry veteran Michael J. Robertson are planning a celebration of life on March 12 for the lifelong sailmaker, sailor and angler, who died Dec. 27 at the age of 59.

The memorial cookout will begin at 1 p.m. at Terra Ceia Island Park on Florida's Terra Ceia Island. A service is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.

Robertson was an avid yacht racer and sailmaker, and he worked in the industry his entire life. He previously was the owner of Competition Sails and was employed with Heritage Yachts, Irwin Yachts, Henderson 30 sales and, most recently, Sailors' Wharf in St. Petersburg as service manager.
