Vi har modtaget denne skrivelse vedr Jeff Martins dødsfald. 


All the Laser family is shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Jeff Martin on 11 January 2019 while
on a ski holiday with family and friends.

Jeff's dedication to the sport of sailing was unparalleled, having served as the
Executive Secretary of the International Laser Class Association for 40 years.
Jeff was a cornerstone of Laser events, having worked at every Laser Open
World Championship except the first one in 1974 where he was a competitor.

The loss of Jeff Martin will be keenly felt throughout the sailing world and our
deepest condolences go out to Jeff's family and friends.

I meet myself Jeff Martin for the first time at the 1980 Laser Worlds in
Kingston.
He was the key man of the Laser development and he is one of the father of
the Laser.

I had the chance to work with him for the Laser class in many championships
and for the development of the Laser class.

We all learned a lot from him and he will grandely missed in the Laser family.
Jeff was still on the deck at the last Sailing conference in order to support the Laser class to be at the 2024
Olympics.

Condolences to his wife, son and family.

Au revoir mon ami!
