Vale Gary Schipper

It was reported recently in the Australian Yachting press that Gary Schipper has passed away from Cancer. Gary was a great guy. A long time sailor with Lou Abrahams on his numerous successful yachts. I knew Gary from the good old IOR days racing in Melbourne in many regatta’s. More recently I caught up with him at the boat shows he presented at. Gary was an excellent speaker having a ton of credibility plus a fantastic way with words and a naturally friendly spirit. We will all miss you Gary, sail on.
