Sad news. David Thurlow, life member of Balmain Sailing Club and Twilight Race Starter for many years died on February 8, aged 94. He began his racing at Middle Harbour Yacht Club before joining BSC when it was resuscitated in 1995. David led an extraordinary life, travelled to many remote places and even sailed down the Amur River in a 25’ footer for five or six days, getting tangled up with Russian Naval manoeuvres on the way. A wake will be held to celebrate his life at the Club on Sunday 23 March at 4 p.m. R.S.V.P. to Hazel on 0415627325 or by email.
