It is with great sadness that we bring this news to you today, August 3rd 2015, of the passing of a great man; a legend in his own right. We say goodbye to one of the world's utmost sailing icons, and our past Commodore, Philip Walwyn. Philip was in the midst of his 17th transatlantic sail when tragedy struck. Philip is a man that has come into so many peoples lives and has given his heart and soul to everyone and everything he's ever encountered.
We all give thanks to Philip, to his knowledge and his love of the ocean. Philip will always be remembered for his heroism, his honor and his very witty sense of humor. His beautiful wife, Kate, is in our hearts and prayers as well, she is just as strong and as memorable as Philip is.
Philip will forever be in our thoughts and our hearts, and we will all remember the wisdom that he has bestowed upon us. Philip, you have touched so many people worldwide...thank you. Woop Woop!
Philip's obituary came out in the Times today and we wanted to share it with you:
