Thanks Angus. Malcom was a fine gentleman. I was able to sail with him for four months in Loch Lomond, 1977. RIP.

So sorry to learn of Captain Thompson's passing. Happy memories of my time sailing with him on the "Wellpark"and the pleasure of Mrs. Thompson's company aboard, along with young Calum, in the summer of 1982. Where do the years go ?
