2024 One-off Sailing Events » Edie Sampson Race

14th September, 11:00 - 12:30

Mrs Frances Edith Sampson, known to all as Edie, was a leading light of the Club for almost three decades. She served as Assistant Bosun and Bosun for over 25 years, as Commodore for two terms and as a Trustee of the Club from 1993 until 2011. The Club was especially proud when, in 2008, Edie received an RYA Community Award. Edie was elected an Honorary Member of Seafarers in 2009. Sadly, after a fall at home followed by a brief spell in hospital, Edie passed away on Monday 12 September 2011.

Edie embodied all those qualities that had made Seafarers a thriving and successful sailing club. She was an outstanding example of dedication and enthusiasm. To most members during the nineties and the noughties, Edie was the personification of Seafarers. Until 2011 the Club's annual programme included a "Vice Commodore's Challenge". Since 2012 this has been replaced by an event for which a new prize, "The Edie Sampson Trophy", is awarded.

On Saturday 14 September, the Edie Sampson Trophy Race will take place. This will be a pursuit race. The start times will be taken from the 2024 Pursuit Times table with 11:00 nominal start and, conditions permitting, a 90 minute race.

HW: 09:26
