Doug Brignell RIP

Sadly we lost one of our volunteers earlier this month. Doug, who has been a popular volunteer with CVSS for many years, sadly died on 7th November. Doug loved sailing and was a devoted father and grandfather. He had been unwell for some time. His funeral on 21st November was well attended by CVSS members. He will be greatly missed by all at CVSS. 

Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Iris and all his family.
