Annapolis sailing community remembers Don Backe, founder of CRAB - baltimoresun.com: "Don Backe never won the America's Cup or any other world-class sailing event, but he probably had more of an impact on the sport around the Chesapeake Bay than any champion. A segment of the local sailing community — the physically and emotionally disabled as well as those who couldn't afford to sail — are deeply indebted to Backe, who helped found Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB) in 1991, four years after a car accident left him a paraplegic. While mourning his death on April 12 at age 77 after a prolonged illness, those who knew Backe are also celebrating his life — particularly the last 22 years of it. A memorial service is being planned for June in Annapolis, where Backe's nonprofit was based. . . ."
