Nick in the CaribbeanNick on Keoma - New Years Day 2013 in Weymouth

NICK SHARP passed away to the start line in the sky early in the morning of Wednesday 4th October having raced against cancer for some 18 months.
Nick had been a member of WSC for many years owning and racing many boats including Pink Stink, Wild Child, Salamandar and, probably the most memorable, Sharp Exit. Nick loved all yacht racing whether round the cans or offshore and sailed with many including Kenny Roebuck, Iain Jones, Andy Campbell-Watson, Rick Mead, Neil Prince, Nick Massey, Steve Fraser and many more.

He sailed his Grand Soleil 46 across the Atlantic a few years ago where he enjoyed mooring up with other club members Neil and Josie Prince, Big Trev and Alan and Eleanor Smith.
His last racing was with Jez Rees and Steve Homan-Berry on Tilted in the winter series last year.
He was a great friend to many and a good sailor who will be missed by all of them.
