Nickname: Quiggers

Role: Various. In charge of the performance analysis but I also back up the navigator and do some work in the sewer as well.

Background: I grew up in Sydney and have sailed my whole life with my father. I started when I was six, in a little Heron dingy, and never stopped.

Number of Hobart races: This will be my 8th

Being on the start line on Boxing Day: Exhilaration, anticipation, nerves, excitement.  All those emotions and it’s the same when you arrive in Hobart. They are the two great moments of the race – everything in the middle is a bit dodgy.
