I sailed under Captain North on the Atlantic Conveyor in the early seventies. A great seaman, master and a real gentleman. Lots of good memories. I remember coming on watch at 0400hrs one morning in the Atlantic when the visibility was poor and there were reports of 'bergs in the area. Captain North was "on call" resting on a lawn chair in the corner of the bridge. Although he had been up for hours he didn't leave the bridge until conditions improved later in the day.

I have no doubt you are missed by all that sailed with you.

Sailed with him for three voyages in Port Quebec during my apprenticeship. Great master,seaman and tutor. His loss was a tragedy. A well respected shipmaster lost to the seafaring community. R.I.P
