Jan Wise - EAORA Sectretary
Posted: Tuesday, 25th July 2017
We are sorry to report the sad loss of Jan Wise who passed away on the 24th July 2017. Jan has been an amazing support over the years to EAORA she was the EA secretary from 1982 to 1994 then again in 2001 to coincide with her tribute book about 50 years of East Anglian racing.
Jan has been the longest serving secretary for the association of all time. Jan learnt to sail in a 14ft Norfolk One Design and trained as a journalist on the Eastern Daily Press and the Eastern Evening News based in Norwich. Jan has always had a very close connection with RORC and the RBYC where in the late 1960’s she helped run the Cadet Section with her and her offspring claiming Transatlantic crossings, Fastnet and many EAORA races.
Our thoughts are with Andy and Georgie and all her family and many friends.
