Ed Watson (updated with funeral details) Posted on 12th June 2014 by Carl Vincent It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Club Vice President and Past Commodore Ed Watson. Ed was a keen racer, helming Bright Eyes in round the cans as well as distance races including 3 Norway races. During his period of Commodoreship, he was instrumental in the planning and design of the pontoon system, helping to make the Club what it is today. Failing health had kept him from the Club in recent years, however he will be truly missed by those who knew him. We send our condolences to the family. Paul Common Commodore Funeral Details: A service will be held for Ed Watson at Mountsett Crematorium, Ewehurst Road, Dipton, Stanley, DH9 9JP on Tuesday 17 June at 13:15.
