The ultimate volunteer

The ultimate volunteer

The Applecross resident and Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club member has been generously offering his time to help the junior sailors learn the ropes.

For his efforts, Brown has been nominated for the Ultimate Volunteer Reward in recognition of his tireless work.

The competition run by Department of Sport and Recreation gives volunteers a chance to win 10 sporting prizes, including a chance to shadow those closest to the action with the Perth Wildcats, Western Force, West Coast Eagles and at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro.

The 23-year-old said he volunteered because he had a passion for sailing and wanted to pass on his knowledge.
