Akuna Bay Cruising Club

Passing of Werner Thelen

Friday 19 September, 2014

Sadly one of the Club's longest term and most sociable Members in Werner Thelen has passed away on September 10 after a brief illness. His funeral was on September 16 at Balgowlah.

Werner was a popular Club Member who enjoyed many social events with his beloved wife Gail, particularly aboard their boat "Gailforce". In recent years they were actively cruising many exotic parts of the world, having a great time and regaling us with stories of their adventures upon their return.

The Club extends its sincere condolences to Gail and family and offer our support during this difficult time. Flowers have been sent to Gail on behalf of all Members.

Jeff Sheehan on behalf of the Committee.
