Sadly, Doug passed away recently. Doug joined the Leigh on Sea Sailing Club in 1971. Many members will recall the improvements to the cellar and dinghy rack fencing carried out by him. In later years he cruised the catamaran "Mauna Kea" and became Bosun at the Essex Y.C.

Doug Garnier’s funeral is to be held on Friday 08th October 2021, 1340hrs at Southend Crematorium. Family flowers only otherwise donations to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Afterwards, James, Doug’s son, would like everyone to join together at the Essex Yacht Club to remember him.
