Very sad news about one of our best. On behalf of HBYC Committee and members our sincere condolences to Holly, his family and close friends.
On Friday 22 Jan around 4pm whilst returning from Flinders, Angus was involved in a vehicle accident whereby his car left the road in the vicinity Mornington, struck a tree and resulted in his passing. Angus was a fiercely competitive and successful sailor and former ORCV commodore 2004-2006 and Ocean Racer of the Year 2020. He figures in line honours and placings of many events with his yachts, Tevake & Tevake II. His first Melbourne to Hobart Westcoaster was in 1998 and Melbourne to Vanuatu 2006. He was alone in the vehicle and sympathy to Holly, his well known wife to many members and great supporter meeting him at Hobart and many other races at the finish. Angus was highly regarded, well respected and much loved.
