The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Appreciation For Rona Bowman By Carol Andrews

Rona was always smiling and jolly. As a Senior Skipper with the Discovery Sailing Project she assessed me in my early days as a Junior Skipper. Her calm and serene teaching methods had a lasting impact on me. A superb skipper who had huge experience as well as humility, honesty and bags of encouragement. A sad loss to the sailing world but what a legacy she has left me.
May you rest in peace.
