Winifred Charlotte Burd, wife of Unlimited hydroplane crew member and author Bob Burd, passed away October 16. She was 88. Winnie and Bob were married in 1943 and they settled in West Seattle. Their present home was in Maple Valley, Washington. Active members of the hydroplane racing community and the Hydroplane and Race Boat Museum, Winnie and Bob traveled to races all over the USA and cultivated many great friendships and memories along the way.
