The John Percival Leadership Award 2022

“Commitment to Training, Commitment to Crew” 

Captain John Percival was an ambassador for on-board training and encouraging investment in a vessel’s crew. 

JPMA, the crew training centre he founded, aims to promote high standards in all levels of crew, in all departments, inspiring students to return to their vessel emboldened and ready to nurture junior crew. 

In his memory, the John Percival Leadership Award was created, to reward crew members, at all levels, who personify that ideal. The award is now in its 9th year.
