A great tribute to Karl Smith

I would like to thank the Jamestown Press for its Aug. 17 editorial page tribute to my late husband Karl Smith and his founding of the Fools' Rules Regatta, and for Sam Bari's fine article, which included an informative interview with Chris Powell, the dynamic "chief fool" for so many years.

The huge turnout was due to Chris Powell, who has my greatest thanks and love. Thanks and love go to Candy Powell and all the volunteers and assistants from the Jamestown Yacht Club. Cheers also to the regatta participants.

Diana L. Smith,
