Ben joined the Club in June 2018. Ben is an avid sailor with a 30’ Sailboat on AA jetty. The first day Ben arrived he bumped his Viking 30 sailing yacht into his pen and was promptly invited by Julie to a jetty party that very night. Throughout the evening Ben met a vast array of people and was blown away by how friendly everyone was. He knew boat people were great, having crewed on sailing boats since he was a kid in Perth and Sydney, but failed to make the connection that he was joining such a social club and a community as much as a yacht club.
Looking back at some of the photos and hearing the stories of the old days, Ben became inspired to continue that at our Club House. Ben sees the world with its current challenges and has come to realise a Club like ours seems more important than ever. With the energy and enthusiasm he sees in people like Julie and Isaiah as well as the Committee Ben is confident that some of our best days are ahead of us.
Ben is married to a midwife and together they wrangle two terrific girls. He works at the Water Corporation within the contract areas putting together the contracts for the large Infrastructure projects. Ben brings to the committee a wide range of experiences from around the world and comes with a strong commercial background.
Ben has been a Member of the Club for 2 years and currently holds a position within our General Committee.
