I have sailed most of my life progressing from dinghy sailing in younger years, to JOG racing and then inshore and offshore racing at Middle Harbour Yacht Club and Cruising Yacht Club of Australia as well as competing in many Australian and International regattas. I have enjoyed racing competitively on well-known yachts such as Diamond Cutter, Apocalypse, Wild Oats (now Wild Rose), Condor, Heaven Can Wait, Austmark, Zen, Toy Box, Pla Loma and Exile.

* Director of Middle Harbour Yacht Club - 1998 to 2002.

* YNSW Advisory Council - 2002 to 2005
* Frank Likely Trustee (since about 2002).
* Member of Audi Major Event Committee.
* Chairperson of the 2012 Access Worlds in April 2012
I enjoy the activities of the club and love being part of their organisation. Activities such as being part of the starting team for special events, organising and participating in working bees, producing and editing MHYC's "The Splinter" newsletter for many years & writing various articles for current newsletter and organising the senior's luncheon. In 2009, I was the proud recipient of the R. B. Cooper Award for voluntary service.
I am passionate member of Middle Harbour Yacht Club and enjoy both sailing and social activities.
