His racing achievements include 12 Sydney-Hobart, 4 Syd-Mooloolaba, 4 Syd-Gold Coast, 1 Transpac, a Kenwood Cup (on the Australian team), and a number of Etchells NSW State, NZ National and World Championships. A number of those Sydney-Hobart races were on George Snow’s maxi, Brindabella with Lindsay, Bob, Tony, Grant and Matt Souter; great times.
