SAILING ICON PHILIP WALWYN PASSES ON
Wednesday 5th August 2015

‘Sailing icon Philip Walwyn, former Commodore of St. Kitts Yacht Club, has tragically passed away after falling overboard only a short distance from his destination at Falmouth, Cornwall after his single-handed passage across the Atlantic Ocean from Nova Scotia.  Philip was a friend to many of us in Antigua and participated on a regular basis in many events including Antigua Sailing Week.

You can read more about the tragedy here:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/11782008/Body-of-missing-champion-yachtsman-found-off-Cornwall.html or on Sailing Scuttlebutt here:  http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2015/08/04/philip-walwyn-gone-but-not-forgotten/.

Our condolences to Philip’s friends and family on this tragic loss.’
