It is with profound sadness that we share the news of the passing of our Vice Patron, Li Fook Hing on 9 October 2020.  A member for 49 years 'Uncle Li' was extremely popular amongst fellow members (particularly those in the Ruffian class) as well as staff.  Uncle Li was a regular sailor in Club races and regattas for over 40 years with an impressive track record even into his nineties!  Our sincere condolences go out to his family, in particular June, his wife of 72 years.  A full tribute will appear in the November issue of the Club magazine.  The Club flags will fly at half mast on Friday 16 October, the date of his funeral.

A condolence book is in Reception.
