Peter Harvey Obituary, Death Cause – The committee of the Aberaeron Yacht & Watersports Club is in the terrible position of having to break the news to the club’s members about the passing of one of the club’s founding members and members who had served the club the longest. This member was also one of the club’s longest-serving members. Yesterday, on Sunday morning, the unfortunate news that Peter Lloyd Harvey had passed away was shared with the community. Peter was a skilled dinghy sailor in the 1960s, and he was the winner of a number of cups during that decade. Peter was one of the first sailors that we had.
After that, he boarded his much-loved cruiser that was given the name “Poppsy” and set sail around the coast of Wales. Peter set sail in the year 1990 in a vessel known as the Celtic Circle, which was a Drascombe Lugger Day Boat. His journey took him all the way around Wales. David Sinnett-Jones, a friend and fellow sailor, sailed alongside Peter during the entirety of this journey. After that, Peter and David motored and sailed their way down the canal system, into the Severn estuary, and then along the south Wales coast, past Pembrokeshire, and finally back to their home. After leaving Aberaeron, the boat continued north and entered the river and canal system that is found in the northeastern part of Wales.
The trip was documented on video for a program that will be broadcast on ITV in the future. Up until the tragically early end of his life, Peter served as the club’s Commodore, Vice Commodore, Sailing Secretary, and Trustee. He also served the club for many years. We will be keeping Ionett, Pandora, Charles, and Thomas, as well as their families, in our prayers, and we extend our most sincere condolences to all of them. Pete, you will never be forgotten in our hearts and minds. I pray that the winds and oceans will always be on your side. Julian Driver held the position of Secretary of Sailing during his tenure.
