Former RCC director dies aged 83

Oz Robinson

former intelligence officer and Director of the Royal Cruising Club Pilotage

Foundation from 1985-1995 has died 

aged 83. He was awarded the RCC medal for services to cruising in 1993

after using his military contacts to fly over the coasts of Spain and Portugal

which produced the first yachtsman’s pilot book with full colour aerial

photographs. This was soon to become the norm. When he retired from the RCC in

1995 the foundation – which he had revitalised – had 17 publications, a team of

volunteer editors and new work in the pipeline. He is survived by his wife

Faith, and a daughter and two sons.
