Buzz Levinson Interview

Interview conducted by Fleet 12 member Vince Casalaina

Buzz started sailing young wit his brother Frank. They sort of fell into the Snipe by accident but clearly they liked it. Pretty soon the whole family was sailing Snipes and winning championships.

He liked the boat because it was easy to handle and he could have a girl crew for him — girls being smaller and more agile in the boat. That’s always an important part of having Serious Fun to go along with the Serious Sailing.

Buzz sailed with Dick Tillman down in South America and he’s got a great story about Dick’s choice of foul weather gear.
