Staff Commodore Carolyn Hardy – a legend, a brilliant physician, top-notch sailor and racer, a woman with great business acumen, friend and confidant to many. Her medical career included work at Hoag Hospital and then as Emergency Medical Director of Western Medical Center. Drs. Carolyn and Bill Hardy joined BCYC in 1969 and hit the ground running with dedication and support of BCYC. Carolyn ultimately became the first female Commodore of BCYC in 1993 and was instrumental in navigating us through the purchase of our land and marina. She actively raced her boats, Mischief, a Schock 35, and later a J-22 by the same name, as well as her Harbor 20, Mischievous. Her crew, mainly comprising young BCYC sailors, affectionately referred to her as Auntie Mom. They trophied in many races, including the Schock 35 National Championships, Pacific Coast Championships, BCYC’s Angelman series and PHRF Southern California Championships, just to name a few. She and her crew competed in the Lipton Cup and multiple Transpac races. No one was a stranger to Carolyn. She had a genuine compassion and love of all who entered her world. She lived life to the fullest. We are all better for having been part of her exciting life and she will be sorely missed.
