Vale Dean Harrigan

The CYCA mourns the passing of 20-Year Member, Dean Harrigan.

Dean joined the CYCA in 1998 and was a generous supporter of youth sailing and the CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy. His support enabled the Club to establish the Captain John Piper Regatta which he sponsored for 13 years.

He was a regular in CYCA races with his various boats, including Playstation 3, Playstation 4/Shape, the latter winning Division A2 in the 2019 Winter Series and finishing third in 2021.

He will be fondly remembered for his generosity of spirit and for bringing people of all walks of life together. The relationships forged amongst his crews were strong … with four or five ending up in marriages over the years.

Whilst competitive by nature, he always made having fun a priority.

Vale Dean.

A private function will be held at the Club.
