It is with sadness that we inform club members of the sudden passing of veteran member Tony Cowdry. Tony joined RPNYC in 1983 and owned a Farr 727 Blue Streaker in the 1980s and then Bobby Shafto (S&S 1/2 tonner). He was a member of the sailing committee in the 1990s and the club’s handicapper.
He raced Bobby Shafto regularly, often with his daughter Adrienne, on the harbour, and in the twilight, two handed and single handed racing. Bobby Shafto also competed in the offshores for many years, winning on handicap in the right conditions. Condolences to his wife Dawn, Adrienne and the rest of his family from our flag officers and club members.
