This March, we lost a great sailor, friend, and environmentalist, Gautam Khanna. He died doing what he loved best — sailing the bay. He was passionate about life, his love, Kay Sea, and his faithful dog Pluto, or more properly, Dawan Pluto Singh Khanna.
To honor his memory, Save The Great South Bay will each year present The Gautam Khanna “Spirit of the Bay” Award. It will go to that person who best exemplifies the Gautam’s love of the bay, and his deep sense of stewardship.
We will present the award in conjunction with Amityville’s annual cleanup of the marsh islands in late September.
