By Commodore Anne Hammick - 15/02/2018

Mike joined the OCC in 1987 following a passage from the UK to Gibraltar aboard Water Music IV with then Commodore John Foot. His extensive cruising experience – much of it aboard his Westerly Oceanlord 41 EDAIN – included visits to the Caribbean, the Eastern Seaboard of the USA, Ireland, Scotland and Northern Norway.

His funeral will be held at 1200 on Wednesday 21st February at St Michael and All Angels Church, Rampisham, Dorset. Those who knew Mike would be very welcome, but no flowers please.
