Last week we had the sad news of serious life threatening injuries to Julian Paul, one of our very long standing and active members, following a cycling accident involving a hit and run driver. Julian is being cared for in the ICU section of the Alfred hospital. I have spoken to one of Julian’s daughters. Only family are able to visit him. I have sent a card to the Paul family on behalf of the members of Albert Sailing Club.
