mate, we will miss you terribly - see you in another world

I read this with great sadness.

Your input in to SOL is greatly admired and you will be missed.

Fair winds AGage.

John Beavis - "NZL_SloopJohnB"
Logged on and see this, Monday's are never good.
Echo everyone's comments and thoughts here.
Thanks again for your comments and support AG.
I'm shocked. One window of my browser runs one of his tools with his name in the heading and the other window announces his death.
We discussed the development of his tools and Aaron was always a good advisor. He improved SOL a lot. I still can't believe the truth now.
My thoughts are with his family.

Bernd (K3)
Even though I'm on SOL vacation I go to the home-page from time to time, I even did the Tall Ships.
It is terrible to see someone leave this world so early, a talented man has left us. My thoughts are with the family.

'you'll never walk alone'
This is such sad news of AGage's passing. He will be greatly missed...

Jim
I have been stunned into silence by this tragic loss and have only just regained enough composure to honour our dear friend.

Ode To AGage

We sail to Larvik far in the north
Our hearts too heavy to stay on course
We’ve lost our friend, our mentor and sage.
The fleet seems barren without AGage

His presence is felt in all we do
Our SOLing a tribute to him we knew
His passion and talent cannot be replaced
And we honour him though our joy of each race.

Please watch over us all from your podium high
While we watch for your countenance in each cloudless sky.
The bell chimed too early for you Aaron, my friend
To your family, the deepest of sympathy we send.

May your winds always be lifting, your seas never rough
Your course always steady, your sails never luff.
You remain in our memory, a comrade and crew.
We shall cross paths again, and our friendship renew.


I miss you, mate.
William/SP

I only started to admit the truth today. I'm an idiot for not telling my wife and friends as soon as I saw the search results.

I'd never seen a picture of Aaron until RC posted his profile pic, but we've maintained a continuous friendship via email... funny how modern life turns out - someone I'll never meet, yet when I said "Aaron" my partner knew it was bad just from logging me out.

The second posting kills me. We all know that the 105 pixels that define us online are meaningless. I absolutely hate that fucking clipart sailboat at the same time as being emphatically grateful that it is there.

Thank you Katrina, Jen and Indi.

Thanks Aaron.

It'll be a while before I'm around. We have unfinished business, but half of us is missing.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
