It is with great sadness ISAF reports that Marc GUICHARD (FRA), an ISAF International Race Officer, has died, aged 60.
Marc was involved in both the competition and organization of regattas since 1978, sailing on almost all types of boats, including the Laser, Half Tonner, Formula 18 and Formula 40. In 1988 he was President of the Organizing Committee of the Optimist World Championship, held in France.
He was a National Race Officer since 1987 and became an ISAF International Race Officer in November 2007.
He is the father of Yann GUICHARD (FRA), Tornado sailor and a crew member of Orange II when she broke the Transatlantic record.
Marc died suddenly last Thursday. ISAF extends our sincere sympathy and condolences to his family and friends.
