Description

I started windsurfing around 87 but lived in western Sydney so only windsurfing about 5 times a year.

Moved Gosford in 1990. And started race board racing at Gosford.

Always busy with being a Doctor and having a family but went to local races and one in Port Macquarie.

As race board dropped off I started short boarding, but infrequent and conditions rarely lined up with time off.

Then windsurfing dropped off due to practicality, However with the advent of big sails and formula I came back as there were many more opportunities to sail.

Kept in the sport to a big extent by encouraged by Paul Davies.

I've always been heavy and was 95 kg when people were constantly telling me I was lanky and too skinny. Noone tells me Im too skinny anymore. I hope to cut back to 105 kg which I'm sure will radically improve my performance.

John Doolan with support from Peter Smitts started Race Boards around 2016 back at Gosford and that has got me back sailing much more regularly. 

I really love the technical aspects of all the different styles and have become a pathological collector. I'm not very competitive but the one race I'm winning is to have the most toys / almost all are 2nd hand.

Currently interested in raceboard, Windsurfer LT, D2, GPS speed challenge, Sup sail in the surf, Sup wave paddle, Formula, foil, and even playing with Kites a bit.

Thanks to Matt Dowse for being so supportive with the GPS challenge
