It is with great regret that we record the death of Brian Heron (St Catharines 1951) on 11 February 2016; he had been unwell for some time. Brian was always a keen Firefly sailor and team racer, and was the power behind the very successful Hollingworth Lake team of the 1960’s and 70’s. He won his Half Blue in each his three years at Cambridge, sailing on the winning Cambridge team of 1951/52. A more detailed tribute has been published on the Yachts & Yachting website (opens in a new window).
Any sailor will be welcome at the Memorial Service at St. Chad’s, Rochdale Parish Church, Sparrow Hill, Rochdale on Thursday 17th March at 11am to celebrate Brian’s life and, afterwards, at Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club.
