Shields

Earle “Stubby” Stubbs, past commodore of Ida Lewis Yacht Club and past national champion of the Shields class, left us yesterday (May 23, 2022) morning after several months of staving off an aggressive cancer.

For the last 42 years, Stubby owned and raced his gray-hulled Shields #59 Lisa each season at Ida Lewis. We could count on him to stake out a position near the dockhouse on race days to greet (or “razz”) each competitor as they came down the dock in turn.
