We, the 18footer family, have lost one our greatest members! Robert „Killo“ Killick was not only an outstanding sailor, he also lived the spirit of our class like hardly anyone else ever did.
After racing on the „modern“ 18’s in his younger years he was one of the most successful sailors on the historic 18footers the last years. Furthermore he is famous in the sailing community for his unique commentaries on the live broadcast and his skills as camera cat driver.
The 18footer class can not thank him enough for his effort bringing our sport closer to the people!
When we were racing at the JJ Giltinan Trophy in Sydney 2014 he gave us a warm welcome, became a good friend and supported us where ever he could.
His sense of humor, great personality and big heart für 18footer crews all over the world will be missed.

He now started his last downwind in hopefully great conditions! Rest In Peace, mate.
Our thoughts and condolences are with his family.
