Des Leyden RIP

Just learned that former IWAI President Des Leyden died yesterday.
Des was President back in the 1990s and after he retired he and Janet went to live on a boat in France for a while.


May he rest in peace.

Best Wishes,

Colin Becker

I was fortunate to know Des both at home in Ireland as the IWAI president and later when he and Janet retired and lived on their 37' cruiser on the canal du Midi.
A lovely patient down to earth man always ready to help (he taught me how to use a Laptop).
Their boat always had a kindly welcome and ever open door and Des will be sadly missed. R I P Des.
My heartfelt condolences go to Janet and the family.
