Fair Winds and Following Seas Jack

Rest in Peace Jack Stanley Roy

It is with huge sadness that we learnt of the death of our past President Jack Roy this weekend.

Jack Roy joined the board of Irish Sailing in 2013 and was President from 2017 to 2020. During this time he led with great talent and dedication, and always with a sense of fun and humour.  The extent of his influence and popularity is shown in the tributes received by Irish Sailing from people around the world who worked with him during his presidency.

Jack finished his presidency during COVID lockdown when face to face celebrations were restricted, so we marked the occasion by publishing his last speech and a slideshow of his time as Irish Sailing President. You can find it here: https://www.sailing.ie/News/id/2695/jack-s-3-years-as-president

Jack was a true gentleman and an inspiration to us all. We will miss him enormously.
