The funeral of RICHARD SHARP took place on Friday 1st November 2013 at 1:30pm at Chelmsford Crematorium and afterwards mourners attended the reception at the Pontlands Park Hotel in Great Baddow. The hymns brightened what was a solemn but memorable occasion; Greg spoke movingly of his close relatoionship with his father. Richard had been unwell for some time and passed away peacefully in his sleep on the 17th October 2013. Richard was a member of the Club for many years sailing Maji Mzuri. He spent his retirement years in Holland on his motor yacht Kubanga-Te before bringing her to the UK to a berth in London’s South Dock to be closer to his family and friends. Our condolences go to his son Greg and to his family.
