We very much regret to inform all members of the death of our esteemed member and great friend, Rachel Wallis.
Rachel was a stalwart of the club, both on the water and off. When she was not sailing with family and friends, she was often Officer of the Day, lending a vital and steadying hand to the sometimes chaotic to-and-fro of running a sailing race. She was kind and firm in equal measure and always gave her all. She will be missed.
May she rest in peace.
EDIT: From the family:
We are so grateful for the support we have received during Rachel’s long illness. The funeral will be private, but as Rachel wished her Thanksgiving Service will be held at St Helen’s, Bishopsgate EC3A 6AT. This was the church where Rachel regularly worshipped. The service will take place on Monday 20th February at 3:00pm.
We are also having a smaller local service at All Saints’ Church, Long Sutton, Hampshire on Thursday 16th February at 3:00pm. We would be so pleased to see you at either or both services.
Sarah, Will, Wacky and Harriet.
