Champion Matt Owen succumbs to cancer
He was the CEO of the Canberra Yacht Club for more 16 years and through his work at the club, was instrumental in promoting sailing on the lake but also supporting and developing Buoyed Up with Tackers, an initiative which assists vulnerable at-risk children and helps them build confidence, self-esteem and engage in an active lifestyle. Along with sailing partner and "best mate" Andrew Reed, he's a three-time Australian national flying fifteen champion and a two-time national champion in keeled boots.
