It is with deep sadness that I have to inform you that our fellow member, Alan Bailey, has passed away.
Alan was a well-loved member of the CBYA, a quiet and gentle man, who most would have met on El Portet beach helping people to learn to rig and sail the boats. Alan always had time for people, offering guidance and advice from his great wealth of knowledge and supervising the rigging and stowing of the dinghy gear.
Off the beach Alan was a great friend to many, and to those who knew him personally, a jovial, witty and engaging character. Alan will be sorely missed.
Alan leaves behind his wife Christine and the club extends its condolences to her and their family.
