Capt Mike Sutherland retires after 25 years.
Sunday 3rd July 2011
After 25 years as Harbour Master at Fowey Captain Mike Sutherland retired on 30th June. Capt Tim Jones has taken over as the new Harbour Master.
Mikes retirement was marked by the tugs Morgawr and Cormillan performing a "dance" in the harbour opposite the Harbour Office during Mike's last FHC Board meeting, the Commissioners presented Mike with a framed copy of the roll of Harbour Masters and Chairman of Commissioners and an engraved decanter set.
The FHC Board meeting was followed by a buffet supper in the Gallants Sailing Club for all the FHC Staff, Commissioners and friends where further presentations were made.
Capt. Matt Hodson resigned as Deputy Harbour Master some weeks ago and it will be up to Capt Tim Jones to decide whether or not to replace him. In the meantime Jonathan Pritchard is operating as Leisure Officer and any queries regarding moorings, etc. should be directed to him.
