Dreadful news - David didn't make it.  Deepest sympathy for the Robinson family. David was a real character and great sailor - untouchable in the '85 nationals.

Truly very, very sad news, coming close on the other deaths of my generation, David crewed for me in the 1966 championships and I remember his wedding in Weymouth in the autumn of thesameyear, over nthe years he has been a good and supportive friend I will miss him sympathies to all.

The BBC have just run a very well pitched piece on David as part of the lunchtime news on BBC South. I'd expect it to be run again at 18.25 tonight.
