I have just learnt that BIL MALONEY, designer of the Sorcerer/Scorpio powerboats passed away on 23rd December, peacefully at his home near Bournemouth.
Bill's funeral is to be held on Tuesday, 7th January, at 3pm (1500hrs), at Poole Crematorium, followed by a gathering back at Three Legged Cross.
Kathy & Phillip of Sorcerer have e-mailed me to advise this sad news.
Please advise those who knew/remember Bill, & all the great boats he designed that performed so well, especially in Class 3 in the 60's & 70's.
Not Missed a Cowes-Torquay-Cowes/Cowes Classic Race since I saw the 1963 race from behind the cannon at The RYS !
