It is with the greatest regret that the CORK Board of Directors shares the notice of the passing of  Mabel Corlett.   Mabel was a valued member of the CORK volunteer team.

Congratulations to Pat Lymburner the winner of the Douglas Heath Award for 2018!  This award was presented to Pat by Lauren Heath (granddaughter of Douglas Heath) and Tim Irwin at Kingston Yacht Club on Saturday April 6th, 2019 at the CORK AGM.

Douglas Austin Heath was a long time volunteer with CORK. His involvement included being on the Board of Directors and Executive, administration of Opening and Closing Ceremonies, long term developments and much more. In his honour, the Douglas A. Heath Award is presented annually –when appropriate- at CORK. In deciding upon a recipient, the Award selection committee considers a volunteer’s involvement, level of commitment, type of contribution and length of involvement. It is intended that the involvement be of a quality comparable to that of Douglas A. Heath.   Douglas Heath was the epitome of an outstanding volunteer. Each year, as appropriate we honour his memory and one of our many outstanding volunteers by awarding the Douglas Heath Award.

Pat has been and continues to be an outstanding CORK volunteer with almost 40 years of service.

Thank you Pat– This honour is so very well deserved!
