Colleague and fellow blogger Barry has written a post "Sundowners for Andy" about a memorial gathering on Saturday for our friend Andy, who sadly died of cancer almost two years ago.
Andy was a party animal and raconteur and always generous of spirit, seen above at the start of the Three Creeks Race a few years ago.
In his more philosophical moments Andy would say that most things you do in life last for ten summers before you move on to something new. Before he took up sailing he had been an alpine mountaineer having climbed extensively including the famous Mont Blanc and the Himalayas.
"Ten Summers" is an idea that has stuck with me.
