Dear Godfrey's:

I am so sorry to hear the news. Peter was a special inspiration to me and the Sykes family. I can still remember it vividly when he was yelling at me to keep the wheel straight! on the drive to the Vineyard in Bombardino. We had many great voyages and really learned so much from his passionate leadership. He will be missed greatly.
