Robin was recognised around the world for his contribution to the development of the floating marina concept that has led to the marina systems in use at recreational harbours today. He was a tireless innovator, whose personality and drive, and comprehensive practical knowledge, fostered the growth of the marina industry and promoted boating as a leisure sport. Understandably, Robin was proud of his pivotal role in the development of boat shows in the UK, advising on and annually installing the temporary marina for Southampton Boat Show and, later down the line, creating a flexible floating marina system for Sydney’s annual event. He also worked with the UK’s Yacht Harbour Association in developing the widely used and much respected Code of Practice for the design and development of marinas. Robin travelled widely, and raced hard. He was a keen and very competitive sailor, owning a series of racing yachts and picking up trophies in Robin (above left) building the marina at the Southampton Boat Show in the early days; at the helm (inset); and with his wife, Pauline, at the Sydney Boat Show (below). some of the toughest races, including the Three Peaks and Round the Island race. He was still campaigning his Folkboat, Cidron, in his eighties. His involvement with the Folkboat Association stretched back many years and he did much to help develop the class in the UK. Never without a joke, a tale or an anecdote, Robin was the life and soul of many an industry gathering. He was generous with his time, eager to learn and to share and, as many other tributes to him also attest, he was a true gentleman. He will be greatly missed. 70 - November/December 2018
