We are sadden to announce the passing of Graham Morfey who died peacefully at home on Monday 02 December. His wife, Margaret, and children were with him.

Graham was a long-standing member of the RYA and a great supporter of the work the RYA does for sailing in the UK. He served on several committees, as well as the RYA Council as a Personal Member from 1987 – 1990.

Graham always had sailing and boats in his blood, from his first Mirror Dinghy to the Bowman 45 (Flight of Time) that he and Margaret sailed around the world.
