A message from Roy's sisters

This is a message from Roy’s sisters Lynne and Janet.

Hi everyone who is visiting this blog

While still hoping that Roy will turn up with a really amazing yarn, sadly there is still no news of him; he remains missing.

We would like to thank everyone for their messages of love and support, it is a difficult time for us all. We know that Roy meant a great deal to lots of people.

We will update this site immediately should we receive any information from the Marine Police, our Solicitor and contacts in St. Lucia should there be any further news of him.

In the meantime, please be assured that we are in the process of arranging a maintenance programme for both boats, thus ensuring Guiding Light and Apollo are being cared for as safely as Roy would wish.

Anyone with any further information should contact the Royal St. Lucia Marine Police, or the UK Foreign Office. You can also leave a comment on this blog - click the title of this post to open it in a new page, and enter your comment in the box at the bottom.

Please note: comments will not be published unless the family can reply personally, through the Administrator, which means a return email address is required.

Love Lynne, Janet and Roy’s family.


  1. Hello Lynne - Has there been any outcome regarding the search for Roy? I spoke to Susie and she was trying to organise a search by divers in the Marina area - I find it hard to believe that no trace was found. The whole thing has been very sad - we knew Roy from Antigua, and the Classic Yacht Regatta - we used to sail regularly on 'Old Bob' and often celebrated the racing with Roy - I do hope that somehow you find out where he has gone - my thoughts are with you and your family - kind regards, Pippa

  2. Lynne and family, we are thinking of you all as Christmas comes around with no resolution in your dear brother's disappearance. We are holding close our memories of great times with Roy in a variety of regattas and many music nights at Nimrods in Woburn.
