(6 June 10) from Ralph Roberts:
I attended Frank's funeral and can report that it was a very fitting service to celebrate Frank's very great achievements and example to so many, who have attempted to follow in his footsteps. His coffin was draped with the mainsail from his boat, W48, which couldn't have been more perfect for the occasion. The church was of course full with his family, many Wayfarer friends, and the local seafaring community. It was truly a very memorable service and a fitting tribute to his life.
