Dear SCARA Member,   

Sadly I have to advise that Peter Morgan passed away 18 June.  The funeral was held on 12 July 2019.  Peter's son Dave has kindly provided the following information.   

Widowed in 2014 Peter leaves behind 2 sons, Dave and Andrew and their respective families. 

Following his Merchant Navy career with the Blue Funnel Line he came ashore working at Liverpool, London and Southampton docks.  In 1977 he became operations manager for the new container terminal in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, staying there until 1986. He then moved back to the UK to work on a planned new container terminal at Falmouth.  Apart from another short stint in the Middle East in Fujairah in the late 80’s, he remained in the south west of England doing port consultancy work before setting up his own sail training and yacht chartering business, which he ran for c. 10-years from the mid-1990’s. 

During his time in Cornwall, he was also involved in the harbour commissioners office in Falmouth (as deputy harbourmaster) and more recently has heavily involved with the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club in Falmouth, as Honorary Secretary for several years, and becoming Commodore in April this year.
