Albett Seidl; a Brother, an Artist, a Sailor, a great Husband and Father.
Albert Seidel, slipped his cable on May 3, and is now sailing the sea of eternity.
The Savannah Table is greatly saddened by Albert’s passing, but we all are grateful for our time with him, and his dedication to the Brotherhood. Albert has stood out as the essence of what the Fraternity is all about. His ship, his home, and his heart were always open and welcoming to his Brotherhood family. His stories, and stories about him, will be told into the future. Today we see him at the helm of his beloved his Barkentine, a twinkle in his eye, and his broad smile in place, heading to the four points of the compass with a fair wind constantly at his back.
Sail on Brother Dokwaes, sail on high. Our deepest sympathy to Alise, and his family.
Adapted from J. H. Byrne, . Hamrick, J. D’Alusio, Sherry and Preston Carraway.
Alise does not plan a memorial or celebration for Albert at this time. Family has recently visited and is home in their various countries. However, Alise wants all of Albert’s friends to know that at a future date there will be a proper Pirate Celebration of Albert’s life and exploits.

New Boclist access
In line with the decision made by SECOIN, and with immediate effect, Brise-Galets will hand over to brother Americo a.k.a. Jorge Sapiains the management of the Boclist, which today contains 3700 contacts, having started in 1992 with 18 contacts. He wishes to thank all of the brothers who helped him along the way with what turned out to be a very long and tedious process. He wishes brother Americo to make good progress toward what would be the ultimate goal of a worldwide Brotherhood roster.
Orza to all of you !!!

As per TTP#94 : Quote: Because this Secretariat is in charge of a Chilean, it implies that Chile must assume the costs of the exercise and therefore SECOIN adopts the existing web with a new design, hosting and domain:secoin.hermandaddelacosta.cl.
