Eight Bells – Tim Irwin

Kingston and CORK will not be the same when we next visit, there will be a void in their group of incredible volunteers. No one in this group of amazing volunteers was as dedicated or committed to supporting sailors and athletes as Tim Irwin.

Tim was an Olympian, Past Commodore of Kingston Yacht Club and Member Emeritus of the CORK Board. Ontario Sailing recognized Tim with the President’s Award in November 2019. Sail Canada also recognized Tim last fall for his tireless years as a volunteer.

Tim passed away last week after battling Cancer at the age of 80. We will all miss him at future CORK events and his knowledge and compassion in our sport.

We send our best to Tim’s family, the team at CORK and all his friends from all corners of our sailing community.
