Back in the early days of Scuttlebutt, communication for the sport was accomplished primarily by print publications. Doesn’t that seem like a long time ago? The Internet has had a significant effect in our lives, and Scuttlebutt has been riding this wave as it has changed the means by which sailing news is delivered.
Thank you Tom Leweck

The Scuttlebutt newsletter is approaching its tenth year, where Tom Leweck has largely been in charge of the 2200+ issues that have been published. While Tom will forever remain the official “Curmudgeon”, he has loosened his grip on the day-to-day editing of the newsletter, and is attempting to ‘really retire’ this time. Tom will undoubtedly remain a strong presence with the publication, where his professionalism and high standards have set a benchmark that Scuttlebutt will continue to live by.
For the holidays, what do you give someone who has made this kind of commitment? How about a pat on the back?
To honor this pending milestone, we are hoping that the ‘buttheads could take a moment to reply to this thread with a note of thanks.
