Started sailing in a mirror dinghy circa 1962 and built a 36-foot cruising yacht sailing offshore in 68-73 followed by construction of 50 ft ‘Yoko’ launched 1982. Sailed over 300 offshore races including 2 Melbourne-Osaka 2 handed and several south pacific events, 31 consecutive Melbourne-Hobart Westcoasters. A Yachtmaster instructor and Victorian yachtmaster examiner for many years. Learned most sailing the hard way as little advice was available and therefore a consequent interest in helping others. A keen interest in weather as limited funds meant sailing the ‘right way’ as distinct from spend to make it faster. An ORCV committee member for 31 years.
