Darryl Mitchell.

Darryl Mitchell aboard Ian Kilpatrick’s Cylesta in 2011

Longstanding members of Weir Quay Sailing Club will be saddened to hear that former member Darryl Mitchell passed away on Tuesday morning.

Darryl was an active cruiser for many years and owned or had a part share in a number of boats and Ian Kilpatrick tells me that Darryl was a member of WQSC when he joined some 45 years ago. Darryl retired from sailing and left WQSC 10 years ago in 2009 due to ill health and those issues left him in extreme pain in recent months. 

Our sympathies are extended to his wife Judy and the whole family.

We will update you with details regarding funeral and memorial arrangments as we have them.
