Alistair Collier

Alistair Collier

We are shocked and saddened to hear that Alistair Collier is missing at sea.  He was taking part in a GB Outrigger Canoe Association race off the Dorset coast yesterday, and is still missing.  According to media reports, the search has resumed today, led by the Coastguard and involving RNLI lifeboats and the police.  Alistair is a valued member of the club and a keen paddler.

I don’t have any further information on the circumstances.  We can but hope he returns safely.  Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.
