2019 BYA winner: Paul Heys

Mention Paul Heys to anyone within the tight knit community of Hamble and its environs and his name will generally engender a wry smile. In the sometimes faceless world of yacht brokerage, Paul Heys brought a mixture of panache and dash, plus bags of sailing talent. He died this year at the age of 62 and is the posthumous winner of our Lifetime Achievement Award
