Ted Jupp Passed Away 17th Feb

It was sad to read in last week's Dolphyn Diary of the passing of Adm. Ted Jupp. He was ever present at the Interclub events between FBYC and SANSA (now-DYC) in the 1970s. It was interesting that the late-Cdr. Bryan Powell was also in the photograph. During my national service in the late 70s, I crewed for Bryan on the Navy Centurions in number of FBYC Gordon's Bay Races. There was always plenty of food supplied by Naval Stores for a hungry crew and Bryan supplied the beer - a great way to spend a "weekend on duty". Bryan also sailed his Theta Theola at FBYC winning the Cruising Trophy in 1981 and was a FBYC member until his passing in 1988.
