In Memoriam – Ankie Roux

by Richard Crockett

Harken South Africa this morning announced the passing of Ankie Roux, their CEO, on Thursday evening after post-operative complications.

I have always enjoyed a very good relationship with Ankie who was always a man willing to listen and support thoughts and ideas put to him. He was a great supporter of our sport, and especially SAILING Magazine, which is how I got to know him.

A passionate sailor, astute businessman and friend to many who will be sorely missed.
