sailing, social and environmental research, mostly tourism related, politics
I sail an offshore yacht, L Francis Herreshoff designed; built of steel in Sydney, Australia in about 1980; I purchased Tiga in 1984 in Fremantle. In May, 2012 I sailed with 3 crew in the Bali Race and Rally returning after 6 months cruising in Indonesia and northern Western Australia. Post Bali most sailing was with one or two others. Solo sailed much of the west coast in 2017 over about 5 months.
I retired at the end of 2011 from teaching and research in the Social Sciences. I still undertake pro bona research and international journal referee work.
We also have a small farming property, although it is really the interest of my partner and daughter, horses and things, you know.
