As you all know Peter Mercer has been Sumara’s Diversity Officer for the past ten years. Sadly after an incident this morning Peter feels it necessary to resign the post. Peter has done some excellent work over the years and it is a shame that we are going to have to lose him at this stage of the expedition after one silly slip of the tongue. Sumara will sail on to the Faroes without a diversity officer. Hopefully John Halsall will rise to the challenge and can take on the role until the next annual general meeting.
