Glenda Nevill

We’re saddened to announce the passing of WYC member and Wanderer sailor Glenda Nevill, who died in a car accident on 31st July. Sailing with her husband Ian, Glenda enjoyed venturing out for a free cruise sail, and their advice and hand drawn charts of the places they sailed to,could not have been more useful for Wanderer cruises. Richard Maltby, WYC Club Principal and General Class Captain remembers that “Glenda and Ian were models of good, capable seamanship. I well recall the lesson given to fellow Wanderers as to how to get off the lee shore bank at Shipwrights without use of an engine, and also the tactical demonstration of reefing the mainsail while afloat in choppy F4 waters mid Swale. Her death on 31 July would have been only a short time after their 2019 RO duty and last visit to the club.”
Her funeral will be held at 12:30 on Monday 7th October at Hawkinge Crematorium, see the funeral notice for more information.
