We are saddened to report the passing of Les Kearney on Friday the 9th of September. Les was the immediate past president of FFIA having served in that role up until 2020. His jovial attitude, dry wit and (generally) lack of footwear made him great company around the boat park while being fearlessly competitive on the water. Les (pink shirt) is pictured presenting a trophy to another class stalwart, John Wilson.

Our condolences to Les’s wife, Verna, and family.
