Sad passing of Simon (Fumesy) Russell

It is with great sadness to share the news of the sudden passing of my brother Simon 'Fumesy' Russell this morning. Simon was much loved by his family, his girls and Audrey and a great many friends in the sailing and motorcar world. We are all absolutely devastated and in shock. He will be missed always and in our hearts. Sail on Fumesy.


Simon had been involved in the Marine industry for over 25 years and was a very unassuming national and world champion in many classes. Since becoming a director of SportsBoat World in middle of 2018 he has worked hard to try and rejuvenate the class within the UK and was especially keen on reaching out to a younger generation. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
