KENNY COOMBS: 14/04/1950 – 05/10/2013
Wednesday 30th October 2013
Over 60 people attended the funeral of Kenny Coombs at Mortlake Crematorium in Richmond on Friday 25th October.

Leading the mourners were his wife Jane and brother Jim Coombs – Jim gave a eulogy of Kenny's varied and interesting life followed by a performance of "the Sailors Song", accompanied by Max Pope on his guitar.

A team of Classic Superyacht Captains formed an honour guard of coffin bearers. Of the numerous friends attending many were also passionate and lifelong sailors including Sparky Beardall (Rebecca), Jeremy "Bear" Wynn (Scherezade), Steve McClaren (Elena), Alexis Howard (Windrose) Johnson "Woody" Wooderson, Caroline Blatter, Ann Louise Stebbing, John Burnie (also representing the Royal Ocean Racing Club) Keith Outram plus many other friends, family and associates.

Following the service a Celebration of Kenny's life was held, appropriately on the MV VISCOUNT (1908) moored at Kew Pier on the Thames. Further celebrations of Kenny's life are planned and in particular at the 2014 edition of the Antigua Classics Regatta.
 
Kind Regards
JOHN BURNIE
