Biography

Stewart Morris began sailing as a small boy and when he went up to Trinity College, Cambridge, from Charterhouse, he was on the University team against Oxford for three years. Morris was a reserve for the 1936 Olympic team but in 1948 he used his vast experience to take the Olympic title in the Swallow class with David Bond as his partner. In 1952 he was again an alternate on the Olympic team. He scored his first victory in the Prince of Wales Cup in 1932, with his record 12th and last win coming 33 years later, and claimed countless other victories in major events, including wins in the European championships. He was also the British champion in both the Swallow and Firefly classes. Stewart Morris was a member of many yachting clubs, including the Royal Yacht Squadron. In 1944 he was awarded the OBE for his part in the Normandy landing while serving as a Commander in the RNVR.
