Return to the Beach.

My dear sailors and friends at PSC.

I know that some of you know that I have been quite poorly since Christmas. After several tests the results finally came back last Friday to tell me that I was suffering from an industrial related asbestos lung cancer.

Unfortunately there is no cure and very little treatment available. I am operating on one lung only and so get very breathless, and have been fitted with an oxygen supply so at the moment I am housebound. I am open to visitors but please ring first to make sure that I am available.

So there you are, the end of my sailing career. I have sold the boat to Paddy and Sarah so you should see her on the water if not me. I must say that I have many happy races over the years, as my trophy cabinet can show!!

Good luck to you sailors and I look forward to seeing you on the webcam.
