Margaret Winn final farewell

Many of us will remember Margaret Winn, who passed away in early 2020. She was a long term member of the Yacht Club and was made an Honorary Member in 2010.  For many years she was the Minutes Secretary to the Sailing Committee, but she will best be remembered for her invaluable help in the Race Hut where she could be found most weekends recording the race results.
On Saturday a small group of Margaret’s relatives and friends visited the club to spread Margaret’s ashes at sea as she had requested. After her ashes were spread near to ‘Slotty’, the group visited the race hut to see where Margaret had spent so many weekends as race recorder. An emotional moment for all.
A big thank you to John Crickmere for driving the support boat and Alex Grantham for using his vehicle to get it launched as well as others who arrived to help.
