Power Section - Social Dinner

06 Nov - 06 Nov 2021 @ 18:30pm - 22:00pm

Join us for the Power Section’s Social Dinner on Saturday 6th November!

Our Guest Speaker for the evening will be Jason Downie, speaking on Navy life, my journey from recruit to Commander.

Some people seek out and create their career, and some careers are realised only at the end. My 23-year career in the Royal Australian Navy certainly falls under the latter. I simply kept saying yes to opportunities and 23 years later realised I was at the end of a career. At 17 I caught a plane from Queensland to the bright lights of Sydney. My journey with the Navy started as a naïve country boy and ended at 40 years of age with a few tales to tell, a feeling there was much more to learn, and a belief that genuine relationships are the key to life. Now ten years retired from the Navy, I have had time to reflect on my choices and the differences I have seen and felt between my military and civilian lives. They are understandably different. My natural bent to serve my country and better our community lives on through my coaching junior rugby union. I miss the peace I used to find on the ocean, which is why we bought a boat. We are thankful to have found the best Yacht Club in Perth and the opportunity to share some Navy experiences with fellow members is an unexpected privilege. There are however some stories that must remain untold.
