Howard Wretham RIP

Heard today that Howard died last night.

Didn't always see eye to eye with Howard, but this is very sad news indeed.

Super bloke old Howard and he will be missed.
I can remember him coming over to Guernsey to sort out a couple of problems for me with my XS-we won that weekend and Howard and I enjoyed a magnum of Moet et Chandon that night
Some great stories about racing all night,followed by a late night dash to get some motion lotion for next mornings early race.
