Linda Hurst

 

It is with great sadness for me to announce that, following a long illness, Linda Hurst passed away last night.

 

Linda (with her husband Rick} joined West Lancashire Yacht Club in 1985. They both learnt to sail in the Club and, while Rick bought a GP14, Linda bought a Laser that she sailed with typical enthusiasm and determination. Linda also sailed offshore with Rick in their own yacht that they based at Dartmouth / Kingswear; in addition they joined many Club Offshore cruises

 

Linda was a talented artist and had remarkable Project Management skills that she generously offered the Club. In particular she was Chair of the Ladies Committee when Rick was Commodore (2001-2002) and for many years Head of 24 Hour Race Catering.

 

Linda will always be remembered for her energy and creativity. Our thoughts and sympathies go to Rick.


The arrangements for Linda's funeral are as follows:

Friday the 24th of September.

1:00pm at: Southport Crematorium, 159 Southport Rd, Scarisbrick, Southport .  PR8 5JQ.
Then afterwards at: West Lancashire Yacht Club All Club members are welcome to attend the service and reception.

Gordon Callaghan

 

It is with profound regret that we announce the death of Gordon Callaghan. On Wednesday 1 September, following a long illness, Gordon passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his close family.

 

Following many years as a dinghy sailor in Southport Sailing Club, Gordon (and his wife Linda) joined West Lancashire Yacht Club in 1988. He served the Club as Commodore (1997 - 98) and then President (2005 - 2008).

 

On joining WLYC he rapidly established himself as a keen, competitive and successful Enterprise sailor. He also was an accomplished offshore sailor; the highlight being when he and Linda crewed for Bob Willetts crossing the Pacific Ocean.

 

He was not just a sailor but also enjoyed playing Golf particularly at the Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club where he was a member. Within WLYC he won our annual Whitehead Bowl golf competition on no less than 4 occasions.

 

Gordon will be remembered for his cheerful smile and enthusiastic nature. As a long term key member of WLYC, his loyal support to our Club and his encouragement of the membership was always most remarkable.

 

Our thoughts and sympathies go to Linda, Howard, and Emma plus grandson William.

 

Linda and family have invited all those associated with the Club wishing to attend to do so.


The arrangements for Gordon's funeral are as follows:

 

Wednesday 22nd September

3:00pm At West Lancashire. Crematorium, Pippin Street, Burscough, Nr. Ormskirk, Lancashire. L40 7SP
Then afterwards at Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club, Bradshaw Lane, Ainsdale. PR8 3LG
