Pictured Right, Luke Cripps Skippered the boat "Blow Me" with crew Sam Cannamela. Halfway through the regatta by an unknown source a new name appeared upside down on the hull, "The Turtle" for obvious reasons during the National and World Championships in Hobart, Tasmania 2009.
Sadly Luke has passed away after a tragic accident on his bucks night. For the little time we got to know Luke, we will remember the laughs shared and know that his love and dedication to the sport of sailing was extensive.
Our thoughts and wishes are with those close to Luke in this sad time.
