Al Rutherford

It is with the greatest regret that the CORK Board of Directors forwards this notice of the passing of Al and Carla Rutherford.

 

The Royal Hamilton Yacht Club

Dear Members,

With much sadness I am writing to let you know that Al Rutherford has passed away. During the early hours of yesterday morning a large fire broke out in Al and Carla’s home in Dundas.  Al’s wife Carla also lost her life.

On Thursday night, July 12th racing will be cancelled, but I hope we can all join together in a procession out on the Bay.

Russ Perry will drive the Commodore Penny. At 18:25 The Penny will fire three guns to officially abandon the race. The Penny will then fly a Follow Me flag, and we will all fall into a procession behind the Penny.

Please join us in remembrance of Al and Carla.

Sail Past this Saturday will be dedicated to both Carla and Al.

Regards to all,

David
