It is with great sadness that we must report the death of Treacle, one of the newest but best loved characters in the BOD fleet, who was killed in a tragic accident last week.
Treacle was a regular member of C31 Blue Peter’s crew, sailing with owners Claire and Graham Bridle. A typical terrier, she hated to be left out of anything so would regularly be found in the boat park assisting with boat maintenance and making friends with everyone. Afloat she would curl up next to Claire for a nap while the serious business of racing was going on, before popping her head back over the cockpit coaming to see what was going on as soon as the coast was clear.
Treacle will be much missed by us all and we send our condolences and love to Claire and Graham at this difficult time.
