Jolly Roger Autumn 2019 Edition
As always, I would like to thank all those who have contributed to this autumn edition of the Jolly Roger. I am also grateful to our Commodore for agreeing to be interviewed and for revealing much about his interesting life. Many of you will be aware that, in 2014, Richard received the RYA’s most prestigious award, the RYA Lifetime Commitment Award, from HRH the Princess Royal. Richard is fortunate enough to own a Contessa 32 which has an excellent reputation as both a very seaworthy cruiser and racer. I note that a recently deceased pioneer of high-latitude sailing, Major William Wemyss, would often voyage single-handed in his Contessa 32 Assent.
