Alastair Stephen Douglas  

 


The Queen honoured Hobart yachtsman Alastair Stephen Douglas of Sandy Bay with a Medal (OAM) in the 2006 Birthday honours for ‘services to yachting, particularly through the Australian Three Peaks Race, and to marine safety in Tasmania.’

Alastair has been Race Director of the Three Peaks Race for 16 of the 18 years since this challenging combination of ocean sailing and endurance running was introduced, but was also involved in the first two events as a radio and safety officer.

He has made a major contribution to marine safety in Tasmania over some 35 years. Currently he conducts Yacht Australia’s Safety at Sea Courses in Hobart along with Radio Operator’s courses. He also manages TasCoast Radio, the volunteer marine radio network that provides coastal and ocean weather and reporting services from the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, and is a safety auditor for the club.

Alastair has also competed in a number of Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races and still races offshore.

Alastair is the son of Kenneth Morton Douglas and Marion Beaumont Gibson. He is a descendant of Admiral Billy Douglas.
