Clive Cherry

Long standing sailing member Clive Cherry unexpectedly passed away on Friday.  This followed post-operative complications arising from surgery to deal with confirmed bowel cancer.  

His co-owner and long time friend and sailing companion Daryl Mylroie writes:

Clive and I have sailed together for over 35 years racing all the time on the Crouch.  We have  jointly owned “Eclipse” (Maxi 1000) for the last twenty years and prior to that “Quasar” (a Feeling 286).  Prior to the Feeling, Clive and I raced “Andantino” a Hunter Sonata.  Clive never missed a Wednesday evening race from the Burnham Sailing Club line and always competed in Burnham Week, sailing every day of Burnham Week for the last 40 years.  I know it always frustrated Clive not to have a faster yacht, though he nonetheless managed to squeeze the very best out of our Maxi 1000 and we enjoyed many sails together covering some great distances too.  

At this early time there are as yet no details of when his funeral might be, but it is likely to be held at Southend Crematorium.  As soon as I know more I shall pass details on to those who might be interested in attending to pay their respects.
