It is with regret that we have to inform you of the passing of Charlie Phillips, one of our long standing and successful members.
Charlie won novice in 1966. His junior/ senior crew were runners up in the Hants and Dorset championship in 1971. Charlie went on to row in the senior pair that won at Swanage in 1975 with Alan Taylor and became the first Lymington crew to win a senior race.
His biggest accomplishment at the club must surely have been winning the Hants and Dorset senior sculls championship in the early eighties.
Charlie’s fundraising activities and abilities as a shipwright helped the club acquire and maintain an assortment of boats for the members to use.
A funeral service to celebrate Charlie’s life will be held at Bolder Church on Tuesday 3rd November at 14:00. After the service there will be a chance to remember at Bolder working men’s club. All invited.
Our thoughts are with his family. He will be sadly missed but remembered with a smile.
Family flowers only. Donations are welcomed to the British Heart Foundation c/o FW House and Sons Ltd.
