This correspondent goes way back with our latest inductee. 20 years gone past now. A long time fan of Back of the Ferry, first time fellow voyager. One of the worst scullers I’ve seen, but can always be counted on to be there when the whips are cracking.
Favourite beverage: “At the end of a long, hot summer’s day there is nothing better than cracking a long neck of Reschs”
Favourite sport to spectate: Wallabies v All Blacks
Area of trivial expertise: History of Australian Surfing
Favourite Pub and why: The Coniston Hotel, Coniston (suburban Wollongong because “I got maggoted often there with my brother between 18 and 24 years old”
You can take the boy out of Wollongong… Great to see you and a fine way to finish the work year.
