With the 2023 sailing season now drawing to a close it was a great pleasure to take 93 year old George Collins and his brother Billy out for a sail around the River Orwell aboard our Sonar "Tantrum". George spent forty years as Harbour Master at Ramsholt so became a well known figure there. Sadly George suffered a stroke in June which led to a twelve week stay in Ipswich Hospital.
