Andrew Hawley, David’s son in law let me know that sadly David died this morning in Antigua, aged 93.
Andrew said that David had been unwell for a while and his passing brings both sadness and relief. He was a wonderful man and had a fitting life. He and Denys Sessions brought their complementary skills together at Port Hamble and created some wonderful boats, including the very successful Pacemaker ranges.
They competed in the 1961 Cowes-Torquay on their beautiful Hunt 34, finishing 8th.
It is sad that yet another chapter is closed.
