Jeremy Lines,  who died on 13th November 2018, was one of the earliest members and stalwarts of the AYH.  He was apprenticed to Fred Parker at the Dorset Yacht Co. but spent most of his working life with Camper & Nicholsons, where he ended up as Technical Director and voluntary archivist. An exceptional designer and brilliant seaman, his charm and generosity as well as his many skills are movingly recalled by some of his friends in their Personal Tributes 

Jack Dalmeny , who died on 15 th  November aged 85, was, with Maldwin Drummond, a founder of the AYH in 2004 and, with Jennifer, was the guiding hand for our early meetings, at the Royal Albert Yacht Club and at  H.M.S. President  on the Thames.  His book on those members of the Royal Naval Yacht Club who held the Victoria Cross showed his determined interest in the byways of sailing history, as was his current work tracking down unrecorded club trophies.  A fuller obituary will follow.
