My professional sea faring career spanned approximately 45 years, 17 of which were as the Island’s Harbourmaster. I left the Island at 14 and spent ten years abroad before returning to work at the Harbour Office, where I remained for 34 years. Whilst Harbourmaster I was, amongst other things, responsible for the operational control of the St Helier and St Catherine’s RNLI Lifeboats. One of the most memorable services was during the St Malo ferry incident when she struck rocks off Corbiere and the international press descended on the Island. I was honoured to be awarded an MBE for my services to Maritime safety and following retirement, I became a Jurat of the Royal Court. I am presently the chairman of the lifeboat management group that oversees all aspects of RNLI lifesaving on the Island and still enjoy this role, and being involved in a world class service whose aim is to save lives at sea.
