Mark Greenwood

I'm sorry to report that Mark Greenwood's family have been in contact to say that he passed away on the 28th December after a period of deteriorating health.

Mark was a mainstay of the 2.4mR fleet although has only been a occassional visitor to the Club in the last couple of years because of his health. Off the water he also contributed a lot to the Club over the years and in particular to Sailability where he acted as a trustee. We shall miss not having him around.

Mark's funeral will be on at 12:15 next Tuesday 24th January at South Chapel, Portchester Crematorium, Upper Cornaway Lane, Portchester, Fareham, PO16 8NE

Ted Jeffries

Dear Members.

It is with much sadness that I have to inform you that Ted Jefferies has passed away. He was a highly regarded member of Frensham Pond Sailing Club for many years and a good friend to one and all.

Ted Jefferies was a long standing member of FPSC, having sailed several dinghies at the Club, but principally enjoyed a long association with the GP14 Class, sailing his own GP14 and, for many years, as crew for Simon Millar, this combination winning many Summer and Winter Class series together. Ted was also involved in many aspects of FPSC, having been Bar Manager in the early 90's and very committed to assisting the Sailability group over the years. Ted sadly retired from the club in 2015 due to ill health.

Over an extended 25 year period, Ted played a key role in the very successful development of disabled sailing at Frensham Pond. Back in the early 1980's, Ted Bonner, ably supported by Ted Jefferies and a few other Club members, started disabled sailing at Frensham via Farnham & District Sports Association for the Disabled ('FDSAD').

Building on the success of FDSAD and a £250k site accessibility project, Frensham Pond Sailability in its current form was launched in 2001. Ted continued to be a very active and core volunteer helper for Sailability, concentrating on shore and jetty work. For over 10 years he filled the important role of Bosun, maintaining Sailability's growing fleet of accessible boats. Ted was a classic volunteer helper; knowledgeable, always helpful and liked by all Sailability helper and sailor members.

Our condolences to Ted's family and friend for their sad loss.

Many thanks to Simon Millar, Jon Denyer, Brian Grimwood and Pat Cushing for sharing their memories.

Safety Warning

To all Members

The Pond is obviously frozen at present which naturally reduces our vists to the Club. If you do go to the Club please take great care walking around, particularly on the concrete paths which have not been gritted, and please do not go near the Pond itself. Ice may take weight briefly but, as we have all been reminded by recent news, frozen lakes can be lethal. The more so as the ice begins to melt and becomes more fragile.

Lets hope the ice goes before the weekend and we can sail again.

Rear Commodore & Chair of the Safety Committee
