It is with great sadness that we wish to inform our members and friends of the club that long term club stalwart Graeme Gibson passed away peacefully at his home this morning surrounded by his loved ones.

Graeme was a loyal and diligent member of Port Chalmers Yacht Club for a huge portion of his life.

Graeme’s assistance in the organisation and running of club races over the years has been considerable. His enthusiasm and wit whilst helping with flag or rescue-boat duties was always full of infectious merriment.

Ever dependable, Graeme even attended our recent A.G.M.

Graeme will be sadly missed.
Fair Winds Old Friend.
