This Wednesday at RCYC we are postponing the Winter Wednesday talk and paying our respects to Keith Mattison. We will be holding a wake with the crew and family of Keith in the Main hall at 6pm.
All are welcome!
We are saddened to hear of the passing of a really good man, friend and club stalwart, Keith Mattison. The sparkle of naughtiness in his eyes, the rhythm of life in his soul, the love of family and friends at the core, Keith lived life to the full and was a great friend to many of us. He introduced countless numbers of people to sailing, and delighted us with his fantastic contribution to music, and jazz in particular, at the club.
Keith sailed with us all in the doublehanded race just last Saturday. What a wonderful man, and a special friend of the club and so many of its members.
Keith has not been well in the last year, and he has now been released to breathe in the air freely again. To Ruth and all the family, kids, grand kids, we are thinking of you at this very sad time. I have no doubt that this club will have a magnificent send off for you – Love you Keith!
