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

His co-owner and long

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

40 years. I know it always frustrated Clive not to have a faster yacht,

we enjoyed many sails together covering some great distances too.
