International Water Ski Racing Online Since 1996

A Tribute to David “Bunny” Howell

As many of you will have read New Year’s Day brought the sad news that my dear friend Bunny Howell had passed away

In the late Sixties Bunny, a keen water skier himself at the Penarth Water Ski Club became a well respected observer and a gentleman of a driver.  His successes included British Championships, European Championships and in 1979 he drove in the first World Water Ski Racing Championships.

He was part of the British team for many years competing in Europe, USA and Australia where he made many friends who like Alison, Jack and myself will miss him dearly.  I have so many memories and stories of the time I spent with him as my driver which I will cherish for years to come.

Our thoughts are with Cherie who has asked me to thank everyone for their kind messages of support and especially to those of you who attended Bunny’s funeral.
