Ricardo Lobato: “Very sad! Boris Ostergren left us today. Much more than 1977 World Snipe Champion and Bronze Medal at the Pan American Games, Boris was a great friend and mentor. He dedicated his life to sailing, not only as a sailor, but as a regatta officer participating in the Rio Olympics and director of the Minuano sailing school. He was always teaching us or at least telling us a good story. It’s already been sorely missed”
