As the windsurfing world slowly absorbs the shocking news of Mikey Clancy’s death tributes continue to come from all corners of the globe. K-66 team manager Nik Baker has shared these emotional words on his K66 news.
Known to most as one of the nicest people you’ll ever come across and certainly one of the most talented sailors to come out of Ireland, Mikey brought laughter and many a smile to everyone he met.
Growing up in Ireland, Mikey has been fully accustomed to sailing in the largest of Atlantic storms and his passion for getting out there and taking on all elements that mother nature could throw at him was evident.
In a quote for his K66 profile Mikey said, “Although my biggest dream is to become the PWA World Champion, windsurfing has given me much more than any competition or title, it has given me a freedom, friendship and a way of life”.
We are very proud to have had the opportunity to be part of Mikey’s windsurfing, he was an incredibly valued member of the team and it was an absolute joy receiving his awe inspiring photographs, up-dates and videos. His energy and passion will be greatly missed.
We will be leaving Mikey’s profile on the website as a continued tribute. His love and passion for windsurfing was uplifting and inspiring and will always be very much a part of the K66 family.
Our deepest, heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones.
Rest in peace Mikey.
