I am sure most of you are already aware.
Sarah passed away on the 10th of June after a diving accident in Fish Rock Cave at South West Rock on the northern NSW coast.
Her funeral was held on the 2nd July at North Suburbs Crematorium and was attended by more than 300 people from her sailing, work, university, school and general life backgrounds. Her school friend, Sarah Devereux, gave and wonderful speech about her early years. I gave a heart felt speech about our 14 year together.
A wake was held at Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron afterwards, attended by even more. A picture and video display was prepared celebrating her life. The party went well into the night, even if I crashed at 8:30, and champagne flowed at double the rate of any other beverage.
Wine-Dark Sea will continue to cruise and I will endeavor to continue the blog. I writing style may not be as polished but I will try.
P.S. In memoria donations are requested to be made to NSW Marine Rescue via their website
