In Memoriam - Bill Loy (by Steve Sharp)
Really sad news that today (Monday 2 February 2015) Bill Loy passed away, he has been a member at R.S.C since the sixties I believe. He was a very good solo sailor as indeed is his son who sometimes joins us for the frostbite series. Bill always had time for everyone and taught me plenty when I first started sailing, even in his eighties he would race and still hold his own out there and back in the day was a member of a group of people from R.S.C. who would regularly take a yacht down to the channel islands or across to France ( in fact there was and still might be a photo hung up in the clubhouse of them and their yacht and Bill is the one up the mast ! ).
