My condolences to the whole Duckworth clan. Katie was so sunny and kind. She was always there with words of encouragement to welcome sailors off the water after a long day of racing. Fair winds, Katie.

Keeping all the Duckworth family in my thoughts and prayers during the sad and difficult time. Katie was sure one of a kind. Instantly a friend to anyone she met as she was a genuine as they come. A kind spirited and lovable woman. Katie had no pretense and a smile that was followed up with a great laugh that makes me grateful to have shared so many fun times with her, No doubt Katie is laughing and carrying on with Eddy, Barbara and so many others that have been waiting for her in heaven.
