It is with great sadness I have to forward on to the membership of the passing of Ken Wilkinson who died peacefully in his sleep last night.

He sailed, thanks to NZSCo Assoc records, on the 'Tiki, 'Toto' and the 'Tane. Also on the Suffolk, Gloucester, Whakatane, Cumberland, Northumberland, Somerset.

Then served on Dock Staff, Royal Albert Dock 69/70, Wellington Office '71, along with being the Asian Trade Manager. He lived in Papamoa, New Zealand.

He will be sadly missed.

Always so sad to hear of ones passing,but as said in past posts one day we all have to go to that unknown destination!
My Sincere Condolences to all Ken's Immediate Family and Friends!
I know he will be missed by all who knew him.
Yes may he now rest in peace and may his sails be filled with calm Winds that may take him to the places he once so loved!

Sail away!
