John Perry 

It was with great sadness that Geoff Dixon from the Victory Class passed on the news that Portsmouth boatbuilder John Perry passed away at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, on Sunday 29th September.  He was 83.  John built a number of Folkboats during his career, largely in the late 1950s and 1960s, but also at least one more recently in his Old Portsmouth workshop, where he also carried out some refurbishments for Folkboat owners.
