Theodore Yach – true gentleman

Theodore Yach – true gentleman

Sad news…

A wonderful man, entrepreneur, protector of the oceans, developer of CT inner city, supporter of Vineyard Swimming Club… long distance swimmer Theodore Yach passed away yesterday (17th October 2018) from respiratory complications.

UPDATE: The Cape Long Distance Swimming Association (CLDSA) said Yach was undergoing routine tests for an asthma complaint when he collapsed and died in hospital on Wednesday.

May his dear soul rest in peace. A true gentleman who stood up for what was right. Will be missed in the CT business fraternity and swimming community.

Condolences to the Yach family from myself, Gary Bonney and the Vineyard Swimming Club
