A sailor and racer with extensive and varied background, Richard has gone from racing dinghies in the UK (Enterprises, Graduates, Wayfarers, Fireflies, Mirrors dinghies, Fireballs, Hobie Tigers, and others) to skippering the ships of the Toronto Brigantine (Pathfinder, Playfair, and Trident II). In addition RIchard has grown and strengthened numerous charities.
Richard entertained the group with a triad of amusing tales: running a brigantine aground oin the Bay of Quinte, rescuing a boat with a seized engine, and hauling his boat onto a trailer at the end of the season, with all the fiasco that entailed.
Interspersed with Richard's talented singing and guitar playing, the luncheon was highly entertaining.
