John Baker

We regret to report that John Baker passed away on Sunday. John was a long time Whitstable Yacht Club member, and loved all things nautical. He was an excellent Condor sailor, winning the championships in 1978, and was a larger than life character, to be found in the bar when not on the water. He joined WYC from Tankerton Bay Sailing Club in 1972, and was a regular on the Condor sailing event circuit across Europe. John worked building Condors at Zygal Boats in St Peter’s street Whitstable, then on the harbour doing the same.
His Committal will be on Thursday 20th June at 2pm at Herne Bay Crematorium, followed by a Reception at WYC from 3.30pm. Further funeral details can be found at
