Sir Peter Blake
Yachting New Zealand
It is with great sadness Yachting New Zealand sends heart felt condolences to the family and friends of Sir Peter Blake.
The tragic death of Sir Peter is an enormous loss to yachting in New Zealand and world-wide, and to humanity.
Sir Peter gave so much of himself - his time and his vision, to so many within the yachting community, and through his dream revitalised a nation.
Our collective passion for the adventures and victories on the sea were so often inspired by this wondrous and yet humble man.
Today, and in the weeks and years ahead, yachties from Bluff to Cape Reinga, and New Zealanders everywhere, will reflect upon the marvellous and lasting contributions Sir Peter Blake made to enhance our lives and our communities.
