It is with great sadness that the East Region has learnt of the passing of Commander Chris Edwards RN Retd, a former East Region Committee Chair.

Since joining the RYA East Region Committee in 2000, he played a key role in its development serving as both East Region RYA Chairman (from 2006-2010) and Secretary (2013-2017).

Chris also created the RYA East Region Environment Coordinator position and sat as RYA representative on the Port Authorities Crouch Harbour Association, Brightlingsea Harbour Association, the Port of London Authority and the Sunk (PLA) User Group.

He was a respected member of the RYA Council and was not afraid to stand up and give his views honestly, or to put in extra work behind the scenes when necessary.

In his later years he was recipient of an RYA National Volunteer Award, and will be fondly remembered for his contribution to the Region.

Doug MacEwen, current RYA East Region Committee Chair, who was recruited to the Regional Committee by Chris, said: “Chris was a modest, enthusiastic protector of our sport of sailing. He was quietly efficient, led and moulded the RYA Eastern Region into what it is today."

The East Region’s thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

Catherine Jorna donated in memory of Chris

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Chris. We worked together for 13 years whilst he was Chairman of the Woodrolfe Park Limited Residents Committee in Tollesbury, Essex and I was it's company secretary. Our relationship was one of trust and understanding and mutual respect and we complimented each other's strengths and knowledge. I relied on his sound common sense and his total commitment to the running of our estate. During our tenure we saw a great many changes, one of the most important was the implementation of buying the leasehold, a lengthy and complicated business.

My sincere condolences go out to his family. I am sure that he will be greatly missed by all. I have missed his companionship and friendship since he moved from Tollesbury to Scotland, and will treasure our time working together with great affection.
