I've just booked the flight.
The Daughter of Tom Savage is a member of this Forum (user name: Electra). I'm guessing she may interested too? I dare say there would be quite a few members + others who would be interested in such an event.
I certainly recall meeting Bob Ford in the 70's at various race meetings - both short circuit & offshore. I know John Troy (Rosebery Office) & Ken Evans Moorebank Office) who are both EX Merc Marine employees. They may be quite interested as well.
