Loss of a member

To the CMWA membership,

I am saddened to inform you of the passing of Norm Burgess on September 17, 2007. Norm was in his 69th year, and living in British Columbia. Over many years Norm has been a good friend to all of us in the CMWA. Thanks to him we have had the opportunity to provide fall and spring clinics at his family’s cottages and property on Lake Simcoe for the last 20 years. We will certainly carry on this tradition in the years to come, as I know Norm would have wanted us to. Those of us who knew Norm, sailed with him, and used the equipment he offered us to learn on, will always remember his kindness, and his enthusiasm for the sport of windsurfing. 

Lauri Gregg, President, CMWA
