Scari­est mo­ment:“We’re both in the Army – so camp­ing has never been scary,” John said. “Sail­ing is a whole other story and blow­ing strong winds on a big swell in Sydney Har­bour was hair-rais­ing the first time, par­tic­u­larly when we cap­sized un­der the cliffs in Mid­dle Har­bour!” Lessons learnt: “Ev­ery­thing has a place, and there is a place for ev­ery­thing. Mil­i­tary train­ing has helped in that re­gard.”
