One year ago today, the unimaginable happened to Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag.

Today, we celebrate a tribute to John Fisher, a gifted sailor, a generous man and a friend we all miss. We continue to sail forward and carry his legacy with us. His mark will forever be a part of the team and a part of the lives he’s touched. With a smile on his face, his experience and passion for sailing inspired us all. We shall celebrate the life he has lived, and remember him as one of the greats.

Today is the Scallywag John Fisher Remembrance Day. We will always remember you, John. Rest in peace.
