Book Talk Tues Casting Off Tradition Bookcover

Author Trevor Gill and acclaimed boat builder David Binks will talk about the evolution of recreational boating in Australia and the importance of experiences aboard tall ships such as South Australia's flagship, One & All.

Trevor is the author of five books and also a former Chairman of SA Tall Ships, a Board Member of Falie Project Limited and Chairman of Yorke Peninsula’s Saltwater Classic, a biennial event for wooden and classic boats.

David Binks is a pioneer of fibreglass boat building in Australia after starting his career as a craftsman of wooden boats. For more than half a century he has been an influential member of the Boating Industry Association of Australia and is a recipient of the Order of Australia for his services to boating.

Trevor and David will provide some fascinating insights into world champion sailors from South Australia and will also explain how the book Casting Off Tradition, with support from Rotary clubs in SA and interstate, is helping to put young people aboard One & All for life changing voyages of self-discovery.
