George Gair RIP

1926 - 2015

Sadly the Honourable George Gair passed away on Monday 17th August 2015. George was a Wakatere Life Member and one of our Club Patrons.   

Although not a sailor himself, George was drawn to the club more than 45 years ago when his sons joined as juniors. He obviously loved Wakatere and what it represented to the community. Through local politics he was instrumental in moving Old Lake Rd behind the club house for which we are forever grateful. 

In more recent years many of you will remember him speaking passionately to our junior club members in his Opening Day address; reminding them of how wonderful our club is, how lucky they are to sail at Wakatere and what a great commitment our volunteers make. 

He leaves behind his wife, Wakatere Life Member Fay Gair and we send our sincere condolences on behalf all Club Members.
