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.
