2 December 2017:
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Paul Stuyck - co-founder and ex-commodore of our club. Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Jeanine and family at this very sad time. Paul has been a fantastic role model, Commodore and friend to us all. A great humble gentleman, keen sailor and pillar of strength. R.I.P Paul, you leave an emptiness no one can fill.
