Christopher Courtauld

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of our long standing and dedicated trustee Christopher Courtauld who died on 11 January after a short illness. As one of the industries founders with his yacht Duet back in the 60s, Christopher was held in great regard by sail training.

Over the years Christopher’s disabilities from polio left him unable to sail but he continued to make Duet available to sail training as part of Cirdan’s fleet and has left a legacy to ensure she carries on her good work for years to come.
