Skip Reaser

 

It is with profound regret that we announce Skip Reaser passed away on Thursday 13th January 2022.

 

For many years Skip has supported watersports at West Lancs YC, particularly with his expertise on powerboats

 

• Encouraging others who want to develop their skills as Powerboat Drivers.

• As Bosun keeping our fleet of safety boats servicable.

• Organising the essential task of rescue / patrol boats for the 24 Hour Race.

 

Also with his long interest in Radio Controlled modeling, Skip was a founding member of the RC Sailing group in our Club. It is much to his credit that the group sail all year round and regularly host RC Sailing regional and national events that are well respected throughout the country.

 

Our thoughts and sympathies go to Cathie, their son David, and his close family in the United States.

A funeral service for Skip will be held on:

24 Hour Dinghy Race 2022

 

Following an in-depth review of the current circumstances, the WLYC Executive Committee has reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the “24 Hour Race” due to take place on 10th/11th September 2022. The ongoing uncertainty due to the impact of the Covid Pandemic means that the safety and well-being of everyone involved is a cause for concern. When combined with some significant logistical issues, the only viable option was to cancel to the event.

 

This decision taken now will avoid any last minute disruption for all concerned allowing WLYC members and potential competitors reasonable time to make alternative plans for their activities later in the season. Looking ahead, with the WLYC 24 Hour Race having been cancelled for 3 consecutive years, we are very concerned about the event’s viability in years to come. Therefore, the Club has made the very difficult decision to withdraw the Race from the sailing calendar for the foreseeable future.
