November of 1997 had a sad note for the ISR. Our dedicated volunteer Maurice Coutts passed away at the age of 67 while diving his favorite shipwreck - the Scottish Windjammer of Bonaire. Maurice was our chief technical expert when it came to the underwater lighting and setup of the race course. His Scottish brogue and lively spirit will be sorely missed at the future ISRs.

I was interested to hear about Maurice Coutts's successful career in the USA and sorry to learn that he passed away a few years ago. My recollection of Maurice goes back to student days at Glasgow University. He would get hold of herbs such as mint, freeze them with liquid nitrogen and then grind them to powder (still frozen) with pestle and mortar. The herb powder was then extracted with absolute alcohol obtained from the Chemistry Stores and the the resulting liquor was sipped. This was done with extreme caution as our palates were used to the watery fluid that passed for beer in the UK in the 1950s. Happy days!
