Intro

  • When and why did you first start sailing and in what?

First wind driven vessel… would have been a scow moth up at Bonnie Doon (Made famous in “The Castle”… it exists). First proper sailing where I had any vague idea what was going on… was on a Hobie 14. That was also up on Lake Eildon in Victoria.
