The sudden passing of Brent Field on 24th August was a great shock to us all. His smiling face and friendly nature will be sorely missed around the club.
The following is the text of the eulogy given by Bruce Quail on behalf of the PRSC members at his Celebration of Life held on 9th September 2022.
It was great to see a fleet of 22 boats on the water (17 x IOMs and 5 x DF95s) for a relatively calm and typically fickle-winded day at Jackadder.

Austin Lakes was the venue for the 2018 Western Australian Ten Rater Championships held on 27 October 2018. The lake is still the best radio sailing venue we have in WA and it turned on a beauty today. The sun was shining, the wind blowing, the water level was high and it was crystal clear…. all was well in the world.Read More
