It is with the greatest regret that the CORK Board of Directors shares the notice of the passing of  John Weakley.   John was a volunteer at CORK and a great friend of the sailing community!  He will be missed by all.

John Robert Weakley

December 13, 1943 ~ February 14, 2022 (age 78)

Obituary

In order to avoid another date with the discipline committee at the Port Credit Yacht Club,  JOHN ROBERT WEAKLEY passed away in Mississauga on February 14, 2022

 

John was predeceased by his parents John James and Mary Myrtle Weakley and his brother Paul William . He is survived by his son Scott, Angela and two bratty grandchildren, Keira and Olive . He is also miraculously survived by his loving little brother David who he often referred to as Nod.

John was born December 13 , 1943 at an RCAF airbase in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on a cold snowy Sunday morning . After a quick stint in the Royal Canadian Navy, he attended the University of Manitoba, Rochester, Illinois and eventually received a master’s degree from Texas A & M .

As a past commodore of the PCYC, the love of John’s life was organizing Competitive Sailing Regattas. He was well known all over Lake Ontario for his “pith hat authoritarian manner”. He was an incompetent boat handler .

He is most probably at St. Peter’s gates arguing about his accommodation.

In lieu of flowers, charitable donations to the Junior Club in care of John Weakley at Port Credit Yacht Club

Celebration of Life announcement details will be given in coming months

OFFICIALS: VIRTUAL SILVER JUBILEE REGATTA


February 8-17, 2022, Virtual

It’s an event like no other. You are the chief judge of a fictitious regatta and every problem that you every dreamed of encountering has happened. There are an unbelievable amount of problems, protests and requests for redress. It is a true window into what a chief judge at an event might encounter.

This is similar to the Black Cat Regatta which “ran” in 2020 and 2021. The seminar runs for four nights, and it is highly recommended that you be able to attend all four sessions: Tuesday, February 8 and 15, and Thursday 10 and 17 from 7pm-9pm (EST).

The cost is a mere $20.00 for four great evenings. Homework will be required prior to the seminar and the next three nights.

The course will be run by Katie Coleman Nicoll and Wendy Loat with a maximum is 16 students.
