Richard Schneider, a sailor who won US Sailing’s Arthur B. Hanson Rescue Medal, died Nov. 26 after recently being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. He was 79.

Schneider was a race committee contributor for the Edgewater Yacht Club in Cleveland.

In his regular station on the EYC mark set boat, Racer Chaser, he eagerly supported all racers and enjoyed the camaraderie of the sailing community. In this role, he was involved in a rescue that earned him the Hanson medal in 2001.

Scuttlebutt wrote that Schneider was a gentleman and a friend to many. At the 2014 EYC Sailor Award ceremony, he was honored as the EYC Staff Member of the Year.
