Dear CYA Members,
It is with great sadness that I must announce the passing of former Canadian Commodore and CYA Newsletter editor Dave Sharrock, on Thursday, February 20th.
Past Commodore Michael Topliss told me that "Dave, who lived with his wife Dale on Quadra Island was our newsletter editor for many years. He created and managed a wonderful publication for the association and was a great task master making sure he had good quality photos, and well edited grammar correct text. Dave and Dale operate a B&B on Quadra. Dave’s boat “Spartan III” sank this past January due to bilge pump failure. Dale feels this in part, broke his heart."
I liaised with Dave over the past few years in his work with the CYA newsletter and I am forever grateful for the time he took in compiling the publication and always making sure it was published on time.
A further tribute will be made in the CYA newsletter.
Canadian Fleet Commodore
