It is with great sadness that I advise the passing of Egon Ostergaard one of our longstanding GFS members. Egon was diagnosed with a brain aneurism 3 weeks ago and despite undergoing several operations finally succumbed and passed away in his sleep on July 18th 2021. He was aged 83 and had  only recently celebrated his 60th wedding anniversary with his wife Grethe.

Egon was an enthusiastic sailor and regularly participated in GFS races in his yacht L’Attitude. He particularly enjoyed Twilight races and loved to share post- race dinners with his family and friends.

On behalf of all GFS members, I express my sincere condolences to Egon’s wife Grethe, his family and many friends.

Pam Joy, Commodore

Egon was a fierce competitor in L’Attitude in GFS Twilight and Winter events over many seasons. He also participated in races on the main harbour, the Sydney Harbour Regatta at MHYC and the West Harbour Winter Series which he won the overall point score and trophy for Green Division.  He was dedicated to his family as evidenced by his unfailing support for his granddaughter, Anja Nissen in her quest and finally success in winning The Voice in 2013.
Egon will be saddly missed.
