It is with great sadness that we’ve heard that Richard Estaugh has died. Richard was good friends with many members of Bolton Sailing Club and supported our 24 hour race team.

Richard was one of the best known and most successful dinghy sailors this country has seen and he will be sorely missed. As well as being a keen sailor himself he also set up and ran Speed Sails for over 25 years helping thousands of others within the sport.

Further information regarding the funeral and donations will be posted on the Speed Sails website.
