Eight Bells - Brian Chapman

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, Brian passed away last night.

He hadn't been feeling well for about a week but it was still very sudden.

A true loss for the sailing community and I thank Brian for the wisdom and guidance (and patience!) he provided to so many sailors over the years.

All the very best.

Not only was Brian a sailmaker for Thisbe at one time, he also was a crew member and most importantly a good family friend.  I remember Brian when he sailed on his father's boat Rogue out of PCYC.  We followed him from loft to loft as he understood what our boat needed and he worked with us to get the most out of our old girl.  Brian taught me a lot about sailing and he will be missed.  Fair winds Brian.

Too bad Brian left us so soon.   

He was always accessible and friendly.  Also supported a lot of young sailors in the area.  

Some of us will still be flying his sails for some years, so he will be sailing with us.
