Margie moved to Port Townsend when she was 3 years old.  There’ve been a lot of changes since then.  She met her life-long best friend Donna, in first grade, at the same time as her future husband Glenn who was in second grade.  In 1962, the Abrahams, the Daubenbergers and the Scheyers ordered 3 Thunderbird sailboats which became the foundation of the nascent sailing and racing culture that Port Townsend is now known for.  Sailing was a family passion.  They cruised extensively and raced competitively, often inviting school friends of their daughter’s to be crew.  Active in the yacht club, the events were legendary.  In this conversation, we sat down with Margie, her daughter Annie and granddaughter Glenna and caught a glimpse into a different time.
