Dear All

It is with gteat sadness that I have to write to let you know that Paul Smith has lost his fight with Luekemia

Many of you will know Paul from when he crewed for me at the Netley Nationals and other East Coast events he sailed with friends from Herne Bay and Whistable.

Tragically, Paul was diagnosed with Luekemia shortly after Netley (he had been feeling unwell during the event). Despite a long fight sadly he passed away at home this morning with family and friends.

Throughout his illness he carried himself with a smile and possitive attitude and was still a great friend and support to all who knew him. Life is cruel and has taken a true gentleman at far too young an age.

My deepest sympathy is sent to him family and friends including Colin his father, a fellow Hornet sailor.
