We are very sorry to advise our members of the death of Anthony Churchill on 9th January 2019 aged 83.

    Anthony was the navigator on the first Morning Cloud when Sir Edward won the Sydney to Hobart race in 1969 and played a very significant part in achieving this momentous feat and also helped Edward Heath follow a successful period of yachting competitions during later years.

    Since 2003 Anthony lived a happy life at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight and a few years ago launched his book Winston's Island about the great man Winston Churchill and his connections with the Island.
