    Alan Thistlethwaite RIP

    Alan Thistlethwaite RIP
    9th Apr 2024 Captain Barnacle
    In Homepage, RIP

    It is with sadness that we announce Alan’s death after a long illness.

    Alan was Commodore in 1979 and was a long standing Honorary member.

    Alan was hugely instrumental in the early development of the club particularly in relation to the dock. He was a well respected sailor and racer at the club and also further afield. A photograph of his last yacht Supermouse with him on board graces the wall in the clubhouse.

    Our thoughts and Prayers are with Diane, Andy, and Alan’s friends and wider family.

    Alan’s funeral is at the Lytham Park Crematorium on Friday 26th April at 12.15pm, and afterwards a reception at Ribble Cruising Club at around 1.30pm.
