It is with sadness that I share the news that Brian Prew passed away on 2nd June. He started sailing Stellas in Burnham owning Four Bells with friends. He then raced a Contessa 32, Jemima C. Next, he bought his first Beta of Burnham, a Sigma 36, racing both on the river and off shore with EAORA. In later years he and Jo Barker cruised extensively in Holland in his final Beta. Past Commodore of the Crouch Yacht Club and member of Probus, he will be greatly missed.
