Mac

Mac’s funeral is 3.20 Friday 30th at Charing Crematorium and afterwards at the Anchor in Abbey St.

Mac was most recently skipper of the Lady of the Lea, kept at Faversham, but he had spent his life as a skipper of many different craft- he skippered SB Felix out of St Katherine’s Dock during the 1980s, he sailed the Morayshire (now under restoration on Iron Wharf) around the coast of Scotland in the late 80s and 90s, and many other traditional craft. He worked on Standard Quay when it was a working boatyard. Mac died aged 64 on board his beloved Markie moored in Oare Creek.

The KSA have have placed a memorial bench at the Anchor, Mac’s favourite meeting place.
