Brian Miatt
« on: December 21, 2019, 02:23:53 PM »
It is with regret I have to announce that Brian Miatt died on 13th December. Brian was an active 12 sailor from the 1950s up until the early 2000s when time and his replacement hips made it difficult to sail.
Brian's sons still sail, with Stewart and Peter owning 12s, but Graham has defected to sailing land yachts,
Brian was Class Chairman in the late 1970s and saw the change to the double curvature rule that paved the way for the shape of the boats we sail today.
Brian's funeral will be held on 13th January at 1.00pm at St Alkmund's Church in Duffield, with a family burial afterwards. There will be a wake held at the Darley Abbey Wine Bar, and anyone wishing to attend please pass your details to Peter at peter.miatt@lubrizol.com.

Oops, forgot to mention this earlier. Although Brian was traditionalist he would not want everybody turning up in black ties. Please wear something that reminds you of Brian, and I will pass on apologies for those that turn up in either yellow oilskins, wetsuits or shorts to the Vicar.


Thanks Stewart
