The Sydney Morning Herald writes:

“Captain Dick Gandy is one of Australia’s most highly qualified and respected ocean-going master mariners.  His books have become classic educational aids.  They can be summed up in two words “SIMPLY OUTSTANDING”. As a TAFE teacher, Dick Gandy trained over four thousand recreational and commercial boating enthusiasts from all over Australia. In 2005 he was made an Honorary Commodore of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association.
