Ken Versluys – Arrangements for Wake

Members are very sad to hear about the passing of Ken Versluys. Ken was a keen cat sailor and always an entertaining conversationalist after racing.

Arrangements to mark Ken’s passing are;

1.30pm, Monday 15th October at Harbour View Crematorium, Poole.

No flowers but contributions welcomed to the Dorset and Mid Somerset Air Ambulance via Harbour View.

Please e-mail Ken’s widow Francis on efffvee@gmail.com if you plan to attend as she is keen to have an idea of numbers.
