Peter Doriean appeal

Support required for the late Volvo Ocean Race sailor's family

Wednesday April 7th 2010, Author: Damien King, Location: Australia

The international sailing world was stunned on Tuesday April 6 2010 by the news of the sudden death of Peter ‘Spike’ Doriean, 38, one of Australia’s best known professional sailors and one of the nicest guys any of us have had the privilege of knowing.

Spike was in the Caribbean to compete aboard George David’s 90 foot maxi Rambler, at first Les Voiles de Saint Barth in St Barts. Tragically in a senseless accident, he slipped in the bathroom and sustained massive head injuries. He never regained consciousness.

Spike would have been 39 on April 13th 2010.

Spike is survived by his wife Nicki and two young children, Jemima aged 5 and Fox aged 3. It is for his young family that we are appealing for your help. Spike was the sole provider for his young family, and his death along with the financial burden of bringing Spike home to Australia, has had a devastating impact on this young family.

Unfortunately Nicki, Jemima and Fox now face a very uncertain financial future.

Nothing is going to bring Spike back, but by supporting this appeal, you will be easing the suffering that this family faces. 100% of all donations will immediately go to the family.
