Dean Holcomb Poker Run
January 1, 2023

Barefoot's annual Poker Run is named for Dean Holcomb, a much-loved sailing friend we lost over the summer of 2019.


Because of the support he provided Barefoot Sailing Club over the years, we decided to honor cherished memories of him with a fun event that he enjoyed.  The (typically) New Year's Day event was renamed to the Dean Holcomb Poker Run.  2023 Notice of Event | Sailing Instructions.

Post-race, we gather in the pool room at Branch House Tavern for a fiercely competitive Chili Cookoff. Be sure to ALSO register for the cookoff here

We're also grateful to Dean's widow Dee Rosenbaum for her steadfast devotion to Dean and mutual support of the Joan Holcomb Women Skippers Race named after his late first wife and Barefoot Commodore.  Dean's love of Dee was always apparent in how he glowed and spoke of her.

To read more about Dean, see his obituary on the Memorial Park Funeral Homes site.
