It is with sadness that we learned of the death of one of the founding members of the Ile Perrot Yacht Club, Mr. John Chillcott. John had been named an honorary member in 2013 and had membership number 15 at the Club. He recently passed away from COVID-19.
All of the older members knew John who was very active in the Club, always present to participate in various work parties and an outstanding racer on his Laser. Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday John was present to share his passion with the other members of the Club.
I have taken the liberty to provide these details for the newest members who didn’t get the chance to spend time with John, because since 2015 health problems prevented John from being present at the Club to live his passion for sailing.
From the founding of the Club in 1966 until his absence for health reasons, John has distinguished himself by the countless services he has rendered to the Club and by his exceptional contribution to the sport of sailing.
