We have just learned of the sudden and unexpected death, albeit after a long fight with cancer, of former member Bob Pitt who was a keen and active member in the 1980s, sailing in the GP fleet with his wife Helen, and they regularly toured on the GP circuit.
Pete and Toni Nuttall recall sailing in the channel on a Moody 36 with Bob and Helen when the engine failed. Pete was suitably impressed by Bob’s skills at sailing the boat safely back into Gosport harbour. Fortunately there are many fond memories we all have.
Our thoughts and best wishes go to Helen and family.
