Hilary joined the FPSC in 1961 as part of the Hunt family membership when she was 15. She learned to sail in her Dabchick in Durban. She sailed with her mother Betty in their GP14 at Frensham and also crewed for Chris Holman. She and Ken sailed together in Graduate No1573, winning many open meetings and the points trophy at the National Championship. She was a great sailor and became an instructor developing the RYA single handed training scheme. She then sailed cruising yachts, mainly in the Solent. She has been unable to sail in recent years but frequently visited Southsea sea front and Hayling Island Sailing Club, posting her pictures on facebook. She will be much missed.
