The Cruising Association is sad to announce that Tony Brett-Jones, a past President of the CA and, for many years, the Editor of the CA Handbook and Almanac died in February after a short illness.

A full appreciation of Tony’s contribution to the work of the Association will appear in the June edition of Cruising.

The funeral will be held on Monday, 7 March, Monday at 2pm at St Saviours Church, Pimlico, St.George’s Square, London SW1V 3QW.

There will be family flowers only but if you wish to give anything the family would like this to be to the RNLI, either directly or via the Chelsea Funeral Directors:
