Thank you so much for sharing this with us. So sad to hear about Bob’s passing.
I remember Joyce and how enthusiastic she was about WU. Love the pictures!
I hope all is well in Berlin.
Take care,

For those who have been in Women Underway since the beginning, some sad news that Joyce McGehee posted on her Facebook page. Joyce and Bob were HHSA members and owned a 36' Dufour, s/v Harmony. Joyce was committed to WU and the HHSA until they moved to Jacksonville, FL around 2015. Joyce wrote WU newsletter articles, helped organize and attended most gatherings for a year or so, and organized the first all-women day sail in 2011 which included a "fun race!" The attached group photo was at a Land Cruise in 2014.

"I'm reaching out to let you know that my dear Bob suddenly had a heart attack and passed away on March 24th. It has been a complete shock. Shadow the dog and I are coping as best we can. Our family, my chorus, our neighbors, our church, and friends are sustaining me with everything I need. I love you all. ❤️"

Joyce's email is

Former Captain/Owner, s/v Whoosh (Racing/Cruising)
