A short piece from club members:
We are very sad to report Glyn Myatt died on 30th January. Glyn was one of those gentleman who had a smile on his face and was friendly and interested in all.
He was an excellent and enthusiastic instructor and was principal of the Notts County RYA Centre for many years, he also acted as Chief Dinghy instructor and helped several Principles for many years after his stint in charge. He was one of the original summer winers on Thursday lunches, not only sailing, but with many others helping to maintain boats and the club.
One of his initiatives was to introduce the windsurfing school as Principal, sending three of us on a course, but he then wanted to learn and even attended the Windsurfing trainers conference just so he knew about the sport, I think he was in his 70s at the time when he first tried the sport, but dinghy sailing was his love.
Glyn together with Will Stanton and Peter King organised the Children’s Summer School on the little lake, with many other club members. Both the Ogden girls spent a happy summers at these courses enjoying time on the water. Peter and Glyn also went on Youth Ocean Scheme and took youngsters with them.
Glyn joined the club on the river, Kevin Hope was one of his crews when racing and he worked in the mines we believe he rose to manager level, before that was an officer in the Navy. He leaves his wife Pauline and two sons.
All who knew Glyn at the club will miss him, the photo shows him with his great friend Will Stanton sailing their Gull on a Tuesday night a few years ago. On the boat there was much talk and laughter and isn’t that what sailing should be, sadly now both are no longer with us.
The family are looking for any amusing or other anecdotes and I can pass those on. Details of the arrangements will be up when available for I suspect the many who wish to pay their respects.
