Royal Perth Yacht Club - R.I.P John Durrant

It is with great sadness that we advise that long standing employee John Durrant’s body was recovered from the Crawley marina on Monday afternoon.

As many members and friends are aware the Police have been involved in this matter from when John was reported missing on Monday the 16th of September. The circumstances of John’s death will be the subject of a Coronial Inquiry and therefore it is not appropriate for the management or General Committee to comment further at this time.

You will of course appreciate that this is a very difficult time for John’s family. We extend our sincerest condolences to John’s wife and children as they mourn the loss of John.

Stuart N Walton
General Manager

The phoenix would run once again in the traditional Christmas timeslot, and also be the much easier to digest 200 or so miles. The ‘new’ race would also be geared towards club racers, so they, and their non-pro crews could be out and back, and almost more importantly, returned to work before anyone missed them. Bring it on...
