Passing of Mr Terry Braid

It is with great sorrow that we have to inform you that Mr Terry Braid, one of our long time crew members of Sailing for the Disabled, has passed away on Sunday 5th September 2021 at Hospice Isle of Man.

Terry always remained supporting our charity and those who knew him speak very fondly of him.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
