It is with great sadness that we’ve learn that the club has lost Maurice Howarth.

Maurice has been a central part of the sailing club for many years. He held many roles in the club, including trustee, Commodore, and was Club Secretary for 25 years.

Many people will also remember Maurice from Bolton Dinghy Centre, where you could get everything and anything for your boat, as long as you were happy to wait until next Tuesday!

For all his efforts, Maurice was made an honorary life member of the club.

He will be very sadly missed by all members of the club and our thoughts go to his family.

The funeral will be held on Tuesday 2nd October, 11am, at Overdale Crematorium West Chapel, then to Ridgmont House, Chorley Old Road, Horwich, BL6 6RF.
