It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Monique Cormier on October 12, 2016. Monique passed away peacefully surrounded by family and close friends. The National Capital Able Sail Association (NCASA) and the entire Able Sail community was blessed to have Monique in our midst.
Monique took great joy in the time she spent in support of the disabled sailing. She did everything asked of her. Her service included travelling to regattas to support sailors, serving on the board of NCASA, supporting the planning and implementation of both the 2003 and 2012 Mobility Cups and several local National Capital Cups and supporting sailors without hesitation. She was a champion of disabled sailing, doing all of this not having been a sailor which makes it even more remarkable. Her energy was infectious and she never failed to roll up her sleeves and do what needed to be done.
She will be missed but Monique’s spirit and smile will be forever with us.
Monique died of cancer on 12 October and she was buried on 18 October.
