This week’s ‘local face’ is Andy Wharton, Asian Pacific National champion sailor, Melges 24 International class 2017.
Name: Andy Wharton.
Occupation: Director Harcourts Real Estate Kiama.
Hobbies: All water sports – sailing, windsurfing, surfing, swimming. When not sailing, road bike riding.
Fun fact about me: I managed the Kiama Leisure Centre for 12 years during its growth phase in the ‘90’s. Through this position I made countless lasting friendships, met so many wonderful ‘local characters’ and been witness to the making of many local sporting champions.
My favourite thing about the area is: First view of Bombo Beach driving back into town. A real local pride and the protectiveness Kiama community have over the area. You don’t see that in too many other places.
What makes the area unique: Lifestyle. The town is growing quickly however you are always close to water or within minutes of our unique rural lifestyle.
