Tony Bouzaid, former New Zealand Sailor of the Year and twice winner of the World Half Ton Cup passed away suddenly in Auckland last weekend. His service will be held on Tuesday in Auckland's Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell.

Here courtesy of the Bouzaid family we present some images from Tony's sailing life which covered wins in the Sanders Cup, 12ft skiff Interdominions, two World Half Ton Cups with the Laurie Davidson designed Waverider plus a bevy of national titles.

He was also a key part of his father's firm, Sails and Covers - taking that over with brother Chris on Lou Tercel's death, and expanding it into the highly successful Hood Sails before moving into Structureflex. In the early 90's he moved the Great Barrier Island running a guest house and starting major conservation programs.
