Fair Winds – David Bleakney

David passed away suddenly on April 6th in Victoria BC. A hallmark of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club he loved spending his days there chatting with whoever came along. For the past 8 years he was heavily involved in promoting the 2.4mR fleet and was active in sailing and racing the boat in Cadboro Bay. David was enjoying life, always with a laugh and a smile. You would find him at RVYC almost every day eating and talking about sailing. He organized 2.4 events and was always generous about lending his boat out to someone else when he couldn’t sail. Last year he had a major heart surgery and was still recovering. He was one of the founding members of the Victoria 2.4mR fleet and loved every minute sailing the boat. He will be greatly missed by all in Victoria.
