Paul said he was ‘it came as quite a surprise so absolutely delighted that my career over the last four decades in the ship and training industry has been recognised‘
Many of us have enjoyed sailing, and working, with him. We are hard pushed to think of a more deserving person to be given this honour and the RSP would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Paul and his family.
