Andrew Short Lived Twice As Hard

"Sailing veteran Andrew Short has been remembered as a brave adventurer, a keen businessman and a devoted father at his funeral in Sydney.

More than 2,500 people gathered at the service at St Mary's Cathedral to farewell the 48-year-old sailing veteran, who was killed when his yacht ran aground during a night race on the New South Wales south coast 10 days ago.

His navigator Sally Gordon also died in the crash.

Matt Short told how his brother started sailing at eight to become internationally known as a brave adventurer and a successful boat entrepreneur.

'This is the abridged version of how to fit 96 years of living into 48 great years of life on Earth - by living twice as hard as everyone else,' he said."
