It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Gordon

Gordon passed away peacefully yesterday (17/03/2022)at the age of 95 , he will be sadly missed by his Family and Friends.

Gordon was a long time member of the club, who always had time to talk to new and old members, and always a smile on his face no matter what.

He will be missed by us all.

Keep Sailing Gordon
