This Sunday, Hillarys Yacht Club remembers former Commodore Chris Grant in the Chris Grant Memorial Race.
It has been a year since we sadly lost much-loved former Commodore Chris Grant. This Sunday, 3 December 2018 will see the first Chris Grant Memorial Race take to the waters as part of the Keelboat racing calendar. Chris' original crew members Rob Bartot and Chris' son Jeremy will be crewing Pandora alongside Chris Kelly in Division 3. Pandora was kindly donated to HYC by Chris' wife, Sandy, following his passing and Sandy remains involved in the Race Management teams at HYC.
Chris is remembered as an enthusiastic and commited member of our Club; his statesmen-like leadership and wisdom (along with that great sense of humour and wit) making him a very popular Commodore and highly respected member of Hillarys Yacht Club.
This weekend, we celebrate Chris' love of sailing, his enthusiasm and his life.
