This year has been a particularly difficult year for WMYC, since we have sadly lost two stalwarts who have put a lot into the running of the club, and indeed, who were both hard working committee-members at the beginning of this season.
Here are a few words I’ve put together: –
Both Pablo Bars and Bob Hoath have recently sailed away from us
No doubt they have arrived at a better and ever eternal landing ground,
Of sparkling waters, sun kissed beaches and rich muddy Morecambe-Bay-esque estuaries,
And where billowing white sail cloth hoisted aloft traverse blue skies, by long summer days,
And where harbour side inns filled with good company that beckon, by short summer nights,
God bless them both, and those of their families left in their wake.
The following is a set of happy images celebrating our dearly departed Bob on his last sail to Piel 2019: –
I’ve searched high and low for pictures of Pabs but cannot find any. Please, anyone, send me some if you can. I will include them here along with Bob’s.
