In Memorium – George Knies 1933-2014

Geo-Commodore-1984
It is with great sadness that we report our beloved friend and one of the founders of Treasure Island Yacht Club, George Knies, has passed over the bar. He passed away the morning of 30-July-2014 in his sleep at his home surrounded by his wife and family.
George was Commodore of TIYC in 1984, has served for a long time as the Corporate Secretary and also was the editor of the “JIBE” newsletter.
George was very active with the Navy League and the US Naval Sailing Association.  He was involved in getting the Navy 44 sailing vessel  “Courageous” to be berthed in Richmond, CA as part of the NROTC training for UC Berkeley.
(see http://www.navysailing.org/courageous.html)
In addition to being a distinguished carrier based Naval air pilot, George was an accomplished Marine lawyer. He has served as the PICYA legal committee chair and was the legal officer for the International Order of the Blue Gavel and recently he worked with the Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary as well as local yachting associations.
George was a Certified Race Officer with the Yacht Racing Association of San Francisco Bay and a US Sailing, Senior Race Officer.  In addition he worked to bring the Tall Ships to visit San Francisco Bay.
George was the 2007 recipient of The Robert S. Olson Memorial Poseidon Award given by PICYA to recognize those persons who have performed outstanding service to the boating community.
