An absolute legend from the Australian sailing world died last night. My dear friend and “business father” Stan Lenepveu was 89. He was the “Stan” in “Ronstan”, and without him many of us would wonder what we would be doing these days. He and Ron Allatt started a company in 1953 that has employed many hundreds of people and given many of us so much joy and satisfaction. He was a fine “Sharpie” sailor and a skilled boatbuilder of boats such as Dragons and the Flying Dutchman. Stan was a down to earth toolmaker who was talented, gruff, no nonsense and emotional, and Ronstan was his life. I will never forget teaching him how to tie his tie as we rode the elevator up to the reception held the day the company was sold!
