GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

Audi Hamil­ton Is­land Race Week is about more than yachts – it’s home to lead­ers of in­dus­try.

“I guess a lot of suc­cess is around re­la­tion­ships with peo­ple. I be­came friendly with Bob Oat­ley when he was a wine­maker and keen sailor. We struck up a friend­ship, there was a sense of trust... 20 years later, he bought an is­land and needed some­one he trusted to run it. So here I am. I learnt to run an is­land.”
