Sad loss of Sylvie Branton

We are very sad to report that our colleague Sylvie Branton has passed away in Grenada yesterday.

Sylvie designed the Cornell Sailing website and the previous Cornell Sailing Events websites, and has been managing them since 2011.

A software engineering consultant in Paris in a previous life, she lived and worked on the sea with her life-time companion for over 20 years, travelling from Northern Europe to South America to the multicultural Caribbean that she loved.

Sylvie was also a major contributor to Kathy Parsons’ popular books Spanish for Cruisers and French for Cruisers, and also to the women and cruising website.

She was a talented and warm-hearted person who will be sorely missed by all those whose lives she touched.

Sylvie will forever live in our hearts and minds.

Jimmy, Gwenda, Doina and Ivan Cornell
