Soldiers Point Marina’s Chief Instructor Sailing School Instructor Graham Oborn  has taken Gold at the Pan Pacific Masters Games held on the Gold Coast over the past few days. Attracting 14,500 athletes competing in 42 sports, Graham a highly experienced international yachtie and previous World Masters Sailing Champion, was sailing a Laser in the Singlehanded Off the Beach Class competing in the over 70s class but competing against much younger sailors.

“It was great to be out on the water competing again” said Graham, who keeps himself fit with a rigorous daily fitness regime.

“I love now being in the position to teach young people the thrill of sailing, team work and responsibility and get them out and about on the water and away from their electronic devices” said Graham – a Yachting Australia accredited instructor.

Testimonial

On behalf of the Soldiers Point Rural Fire Brigade, I would like to thank you for your kind donation of a berth for our Fire Boat.

As a relatively new addition to our brigade, the boat represents a significant investment by Lower Hunter RFS and as such we take our marine responsibilities seriously. Of course, a boat is only as good as its access to the Port Stephens waterways and by allowing us to berth the fire boat at your marina, we are in a fine position to be deployed at short notice.

Once again, I thank you for your generous contribution to the Rural Fire Service and in particular, to our brigade.

Neville Klein, Captain Soldiers Point Rural Fire Brigade
