About Me:

Happy Raconteur

I love regattas, either sailing eg at Hamilton Island Race Week or officiating locally and around the world. Ultimately I want to find someone who would also enjoy this regatta lifestyle. I think I’ve established a good balance between family commitments as my children are increasingly independent, professional responsibilities (FRICS) and regattas.

I recently watched 'The Pacific - in the wake of Captain Cook' and it really struck a chord with me. I've been a big fan of Sam Neil since 'The Hunt for Red October' and these days enjoy his Two Paddocks Pinot Noir.

Sailing Experience:

Sailed all my life, including the Sydney Hobart race a couple of times. Prefer cruising these days.
