SPORTING, OTHER INTERESTS

In Australia, active in tennis, squash, sailing. Met wife (Maureen) on squash court while managing/coaching at squash centre near University of Western Australia during third year of B.Sc degree. For period of time, co-owner of heavy-weight catamaran at Royal Perth Yacht Club, host club for first winning challenge (and later loss), of America’s Cup yacht race.

During early university student time, was co-founder and inaugural treasurer of Western Australian Speleological Group (WASG). A Photograph taken by newspaper photographer in newly-discovered cave in southwestern Australia was published in ‘Daily News’ (Perth newspaper). On visit to Perth, WA, in 1992, found that this photograph now is logo of greatly-expanded WASG, on T-shirts, and bumper stickers! Experiences as cave explorer has had bearing years later on dolomite research and origin of brecciated carbonates.
