Sadly we have to report that Paul Mace, long time Captain of the Medway Branch of the RNSA, passed away on 3rd May. A keen and knowledgeable sailor himself, Paul’s enthusiasm and leadership of the local RNSA developed the Branch and steered it through difficult times and it is much to his credit that it is now a healthy and flourishing club. He will be sorely missed by all in the RNSA, and the many other river users to whom Paul freely gave his time, help and guidance.
Paul served in the Royal Navy as a submariner. He also served on board HMS Cavalier, now preserved in Chatham Historic Dockyard and Paul was an active member of the HMS Cavalier Association, helping to maintain the ship when time allowed.
Our condolences go out to Paul’s family at this sad time.
