I learned to sail with Sea Scouts growing up in Canberra and had plenty of fun sailing small boats.
I sailed from South Africa to Australia with my wife and three kids, making landfall in Brisbane in 2011 after a year at sea.
A friend of a friend told me about a position going at WRAY.
I was visiting from my home on the Gold Coast and decided to stay.
My wife Nancy and I sailed into Shute Harbour on our catamaran Stormbird in 2007.
I have lived in the Whitsundays since 2001 when I moved here from the United Kingdom, so I had been aware of WRAY for a long time.
I arrived in the Whitsundays in 1988 during Australia’s Bicentenary and got a job on South Molle Island as a water ski instructor.
I moved from Tasmania in 2014 to work in the marine tourism industry in the Whitsundays – the best spot in Australia to do that.
