By Humphrey Carter SCORES of people from across Majorca gathered at the Club de Mar yesterday lunchtime to “raise a glass” in commemoration of the late legendary Chris Moorhouse who died at his New Zealand home a week ago.

The internationally reknowned yacht photographer spent most of his professional career based in Palma until deciding to return home to New Zealand four years ago. Chris, who celebrated his 64th birthday earlier last month, died of a sudden heart attack last Tuesday and was buried in New Zealand earlier yesterday.

The Club de Mar bar was full to over-flowing with friends of the photographer, many came especially dressed in loud Hawaiian shirts - just like the ones Chris was very partial to.

Their was plenty of laughter, the bar men were kept busy and a moving speech from John Rule drew a few tears.
A giant photograph of Chris was signed by all those present and it will eventually be sent to his family back in New Zealand.
