Unveiling of the Plaque in recognition of Dudley Jacobs


I thought i would add a few photos for those far away who would have liked to be there on Wednesday when Dudley was honoured by his fellow pilots, the Gladstone Port Authority, fellow sailors and friends.

A step back in time .......................................
                                                               


                                   Dudley was pretty comfortable on the helm,







                                                                                        
                                                        

         .......and so this week, we gathered to talk about Dudley ... and spend a bit of time to honour the   man he was.............









A few people spoke ........

                                                                               

                                 the plaque unveiled by Lynne and Heather and a few words said,

                                                                        





                            ........ a pleasant spot to spend a few moments...........

  2. I just heard that Dudley is gone. I will miss him. I learnt so much from Dudley about life during the time I spent as crew on his previous yacht, Byfarr. My thoughts go out to Lynne, Sarah and Heather the comedian. Robert (Bob) Free
