The death of an inspirational figure in sailing, ISORA's Richard Tudor of Pwllheli, has been remembered this week by his North Wales club in a special website tribute to the sailor who was a top sailor across a wide spectrum of interests in boats.

As Afloat reported previously, Richard was a former Commodore and dedicated committee member of Clwb Hwylio Pwllheli Sailing Club for many years, and among many other successful experiences, he was a round-the-world yachtsman.

A dedicated Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association participant, in 2021 he received the CHPSC Lifetime Achievement Award.
