A tragic loss of a true gentleman. He will be deeply missed by his many friends in the sailing world!

All out thoughts to Dave's family and friends.

It is very difficult to express how I feel. The world is a poorer place for the loss of Dave.

He was the "DAD" of the UK Skiff world and will be greatly missed by us all.

All our thoughts are with
Glynis and the boys.

Condolences go out to his friends and family, and anyone he has touched, looking at this thread that seems to be many people.

There is only one word for the man, Legend. 

I saw him not more than a couple of weeks ago, he was on the phone so I just waved, I wish i'd taken the time to say hello now.  My heart goes out to his family and everyone at Ovington boats.
