Caroline Nisson, adored wife, mother, grandmother and friend, sadly passed away on Sunday 30th August 2020. Her death was sudden and unexpected. She and her beloved husband Kris were in the place she loved best - onboard Flicka - in company with other Contessa 32s and good friends at The Folly on the river Medina, Isle of Wight.
Caroline was an accomplished sailor and navigator. She and Kris had many adventures in Flicka - in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, Holland, Belgium, France and the Channel Islands, as well as here in British waters.
Caroline loved entertaining friends and family onboard Flicka, feeding everyone with fantastic food and way too much wine. Her frequent, mischievous laugh was often heard in marinas and anchorages. She was a “cruiser in style” and will be remembered for her beautiful smile and the way she engaged everyone she met, with warmth, genuine interest and care.
Her tragic death doing what she loved is a wonderful testament to a life well lived. She will be sorely missed by so many.
Kris and family would like to thank all those from the Contessa 32 Cruisers who gave Caroline so much fun, and to those who helped at the time.
Kris Nisson, 3rd September 2020
