Chris LAW (GBR)

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Chris LAW (GBR) passed away at Lake Constance, Germany on Tuesday 24 July 2007 aged 55.
Chris began his extraordinary sailing career at Lymington racing cadets with his brother Tim. His outstanding talent rapidly propelled him onto the International scene where he won the Finn Gold Cup, represented his country at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 1984 in the Soling before moving on to a new challenge in the form of match racing and the America's Cup.

Chris was a much loved son, father, grandfather, friend and member of international sailing fraternity and will be deeply missed by all.

Memorial service details will be released in due course.

ISAF sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Chris LAW.
