Taylor Larimore Honored

Post by Mel Lindauer »

Hi Everyone:

From an article I just came across:
Larimore/Moynahan Trophy

Miami's extensive sailing community, led by the Coconut Grove Sailing Club, is honoring long-time Miami residents, sailors and veterans, John H. Moynahan (93) and Taylor C. Larimore (91), by establishing a perpetual trophy in their name. Both men are avid sailors and long-time fixtures on the Miami racing scene. In addition to crewing on many of the leading racing boats of the last several decades, locally and throughout the world, both men have been generous in their support of Miami's youth sailing programs.

The Larimore/Moynahan Trophy will be awarded each year to the winner of the CGSC's Annual PHRF Regatta, Racing Fleet. This event is also one of the Biscayne Bay Yacht Racing Association annual PHRF series. The inaugural presentation of this trophy will be held at CGSC after the day's racing on Saturday, April 4, 2015.

Taylor Larimore was eleven years old when the 1935 hurricane, that swept through Miami, blew a sailboat into his yard and he's been sailing ever since. Dedicated to introducing the sport to young people, he has taught over 1000 youngsters the art of sailing and was named Instructor of the Year in 1992 by the American Sailing Association. As a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne, he fought in the famed Battle of the Bulge, spending Christmas of 1944 in a foxhole under heavy German attack before emerging as part of the victorious Division that helped turn the tide of war in Europe.

John Moynihan, as a young US Navy Lieutenant, served in the Pacific on the destroyer USS Ammen, subjected during the Okinawa campaign to a constant barrage of Japanese Kamikaze suicide attacks. His ship was among the first to enter Nagasaki harbor after the dropping of the atomic bomb.

Tax-deductible contributions are being solicited to fund sailing scholarships for underprivileged youth in the names of these two outstanding men and should be made to:

The Coconut Grove Sailing Foundation Inc.
c/o LB Carpenter, CPA
PO Box 331835
Coconut Grove FL 32333-1835

Specify: Larimore/Moynahan Sailing Scholarships Fund
Congratulations for this well-deserved honor, my very dear friend and co-author.

Best regards,

Mel

Isn't that just like Taylor - everyone else had their house blown away by that old hurricane, but Taylor had his lifelong passion blown into his yard :wink:
Is that the yard around the house that Jack built?

Congrats Taylor.

I am starting to think that beer commercial regarding the "Most interesting man in the world" may be referring to Taylor. A paratrooper, Government man, sailor, author, investor, husband, father, grandfather, and all around well intentioned contributor to many folks lives. All of this and still going strong at the ripe age of 90's.

I would LOVE to read your autobiography if you ever choose to write one.

Good luck.
