Alan Gregory, Commodore of RCYC from December 1975 – June 1978, passed away on Friday 20th June 2014. He was a popular Commodore, Trustee and a keen sailor despite his handicap.
Alan sailed in England before coming to South Africa. He joined RCYC in mid1955 and sailed with Cyril Oldroyd. He took part in the first Cape to Rio Race on “Elegance” and also in the 1976 Cape to Rio Race on “Junior Kaap”.
Alan met Adrienne at the RCYC in 1966 and they married in 1982. They were to be seen regularly at the club with her laterally assisting him in the manoeuvring of his wheel chair. They sailed their Miura “Chiquita” regularly from 1983-2002 with regular cruises to Saldanha Bay. We extend to Adrienne, Lesley, Neil and their families our deepest Sympathy.
Friends are welcome to attend Alan’s memorial service which will be held at the Royal Cape Yacht Club’s Main Hall at 12h00 on Saturday 28th June 2014
BON VOYAGE Alan.
