A message for Condolence
I was just notified that William J. Astbury, lifelong radio sailing enthusiast and South American Hall of Fame inductee, passed away today very unexpectedly. William was father to the gifted sailor Denis Astbury, accomplished IOM builder (BritPOP) from Nautae Racing Model Yachts. Please keep the Astbury family in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.
-Fred Rocha, IOM Chairman
