Sad News

It is with sadness that we have learnt that long standing member Chris Denwood has tragically been killed in a motorcycle accident.

Chris joined the club with his family over 40 years ago and was an avid GP and Laser sailor in his time. Although he left to tour the world and then work in London, he came back to the area a few years ago and rejoined as a member and bought another Laser, but his passion for sailing had passed him by.

Chris’ father was Mike Denwood, and his brother is Trustee Jon Denwood. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

Chris’ funeral was held in Distington Crematorium on Monday 30 July, and afterwards at Hundith Hill Hotel, Nr Cockermouth.
