The funeral was a great tribute to Stu, he was a person who liked to help the under-privileged and youth selflessly. I consider myself lucky and fortunate as well, to have sailed with him on Ballistic for a season and to meet socially while cruising at various times and at the TYPBC events.

It was also very sad, hearing the trauma of the event and feeling the sorrow for all involved. The rescue personnel did an amazing job in very difficult circumstances, huge waves and 60+ kn winds.

RIP Stuart
