Pamela was conducted while sailing his boat; they married in 1952 and had two sons and two daughters.


Offshore sailing freed Tim from the city and he participated in many RORC races, including the infamous 1979 Fastnet when 19 people died. It was noted in the log that during the storm he broke a cabin window with his head as the boat was violently rolled by the huge seas – ‘Skipper shit scared – tried to leave by the window’. In later years he supported the RORC race management team by making his motorboat available as a committee boat. His under- standing and passion for the sport, together with a good sense of humour, made him a much valued ambassador for everything that the RORC stands for.
