Dear [recipient name]

The tragic loss at sea of John Fisher from Scallywag overshadows all other news. Accidents by their very nature are unpredictable. We can plan, reduce risk, and take precautions; but when the stars line up the wrong way, things go wrong.

Sail-World Asia extends our deepest condolences to John Fisher’s family, friends, and crewmates. Fish will certainly be welcomed at Fiddler’s Green. RIP.
