It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing away of one of the Solway Yacht Club's most long-serving and distinguished members, Barry Filer. A private family funeral will take place at Colvend churchyard on Friday September 18th at 11.30am. The family has requested that donations in his memory be made to Kippford RNLI. Further details on how Club members can pay their formal respects on the day will be announced shortly.

Robert Dinwiddie, Commodore
