Port Vila Parasailing
Port Vila Parasailing has undergone a change of ownership this
year, and on Friday 5th June, Bruce and Helen Goad celebrated their new life in Vanuatu with a number of Port Vila
residents and business owners. Bruce has a long history with the fire service in Adelaide, his career coming to an
end when he could no longer physically perform his job. Five years on, after successfully having bilateral hip
replacements, the urge to take the sea change was too strong to resist. Bruce is supported by wife, Helen, who
brings with her lots of life and business experience. Originally having a career as a Registered Nurse, Helen
branched out into related fields including counselling and working with the disabled.
