Vale Mike Montgomery  

Dear Members, It is with sad regret that I inform you that Mike Montgomery passed away on Sunday morning. 

Mike was the clubs Sailing Director until recently and had been an active club member since he joined the club in 2005. 

Mike was a delight to be around and was always keen for a chat and was very supportive of those new to the club, especially if you had a yacht! Sailing was his passion and he was a great organiser of our race program which he developed into being one that was envied by clubs around the bay for its sheer number of races for a club our size. If you were a sailor then you would have received the weekly 'notice of race' from Mike along with an update on the expected weather forecast. On race days Mike would always hold a safety briefing, race his boat hard and then be on hand to help calculate handicaps results and and then in his quite manner he would read out the results to assembled crews with his dry humour thrown in. Mike was a quiet achiever and leader for many years in our club and a great number of us have had our lives enriched through Mike's passion for sailing, his volunteering he did for our club and in him being an all round great bloke! 

Our hearts go out to Mike's wife Christine and family at this time. 

 ... Fair winds and following seas Mike ... 

Sincerely and on behalf of the Committee . Byron
