Tim's Hemsley Memorial Race

TIM HEMSLEY

 

                                                          27TH February 1964 -4th February 2013.

 

There was standing room only in the crematorium chapel in Aldershot. A congregation of more than one hundred gathered to say farewell to sailor and sportsman, Tim Hemsley. With Tim’s family and close friends were so many from his home sailing club at Frensham, as well as offshore yachtsmen and international sailing figures. Also present was a large contingent of Tim’s Travis Perkins workmates and many friends from the non-sailing world and from the worlds of rugby and off road motoring. It was a moving and fitting occasion accompanied by Tim’s favourite music. Tim’s family and sailing friends read tributes that brought so many memories of this great and lovable character.  

 

Following the ceremony a long convoy of cars set off for Frensham Sailing Club. Here a cheerful wake was arranged in exactly Tim’s style. Famous throughout the sailing world as “the pieman” it was appropriate that Alresford hot pies were on offer for all. On the water a short memorial race took part. Thirty five dinghies from seventeen classes took part from Access 2.2 to RS 100. Members of Tim’s family took part as well as his 2010 winning crew for the round the Isle of Wight Race. The memorial race was informal but first to the finish was Tim’s Phantom series rival, Simon Hawkes. It was good to see Tim’s own Phantom dinghy out on the water as well as his newly bought National 12. It was so sad that Tim was not at the helm.

TIM HEMSLEY

It is with great sadness and shock that we heard of the untimely death of Tim Hemsley on Monday.  

Tim was well-known at Frensham for being a brilliant sailor, a good and loyal friend with a great sense of humour and for his dedication to the Club over many years.   

As so many of his friends have testified, Tim was a real gentleman, generous and optimistic and without his sense of fun and happy smile around the club, we will all be the poorer.  He will really be missed.

 

Further information and tributes will follow over the next week.
