From Pittwater Arthur Spithill has sent this sad news

It is with great sadness that we have lost one of dear friends from Pittwater, prized waterway just north of Sydney, and in particular a long time resident of its most famous island, Scotland Island. Ian Souter (61) passed away on 23 October after a long battle with cancer. He has lived on the island since the late 70’s. Ian’s affinity with the water, his love of sailing and zest for life will long be remembered by all who had the pleasure of his company.

As a registered surveyor and one of Australia’s leading experts on waterfront survey matters, Ian’s contribution in this field is unsurmountable.

Vale Ian Souter: 25th November 1951 – 23rd October 2013 -    


He was heavily committed to the 'Offshore' community, assisting many residents with their survey issues. As a long standing Committee Member of SIRA and a driving force in the design of the Church Point Commuter Wharf, which is now enjoyed by so many Pittwater offshore residents. He provided his expertise to help create solutions to the parking issue at Church Point and the development of the Church Point Plan of Management. He was recognised by the Institute of Surveyors in the NSW Excellence in Surveying Awards 2013 for his achievements, as a finalist in the category 'People and Community' for his work on the Church Point Development.

What many residents were not aware of was Ian’s extensive contribution to child and youth development sailing programs in the Manly Juniors and Flying 11 classes. He worked on various programs with Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Royal Motor Yacht Club, Lane Cove 12 Skiff Sailing Club and Manly Skiff Club.

He was a champion sailor specialising as a forward hand in many winning skiffs, which included two World 18’Skiff Championships, with Iain Murray, numerous Australian Titles; and major title wins in the 12’ skiffs.

In 2000 he was awarded the Australian Sports Medal for his contributions to sailing.

After retiring from the competitive world of modern skiff sailing he then focused on sailing the more traditional form of skiff sailing, that being the historical 10 foot and 18 foot skiffs.

As recently as January of this year he sailed on the winning boat in the Historical 18’skiff Australian Championship, winning two of the three heat series, overriding the obvious debilitating health issues.

Ian is survived by his Parents Eric, Maureen and Barbara, daughter Nicky and son Craig. His Grandson Jordan, brothers Ward, Craig, Dean and sisters Allyson and Roc.

We will all miss him dearly.
