Sue is the current president of the Main Beach Association first discovered  the delights of Main Beach when she and her husband John bought a yacht at the Gold Coast over 30 years ago. Though running a successful international publishing company based in Melbourne, Chicago, Denver and London, she immediately appreciated the fact that the Gold Coast was a perfect base for cruising the Australian coast.

After selling their business to an international company Sue and John bought a yacht in France, which they sailed across the Atlantic and the Pacific-then through Indonesia to Thailand, India and Borneo.
After 12 years of sailing the world, Sue and John now apply their energies to protecting and enhancing Main Beach and The Spit—and chartering boats from time to time in Europe
