Jervis Bay Under Attack

The locals of Jervis Bay have been rattled by the multiple shark sightings in the area over the past couple of days.

They have left the locals to believe that there could be several sharks lurking on the coast line.

On Sunday morning, April 22, The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) shark spotting helicopter spotted a 2.5-metre unidentified shark and notified authorities.

Merely 24 hours later, swimmers evacuated as the DPI aerial shark patrol helicopter identified a white shark close by at Hyams Point.

Then today, Tuesday April 24, Aerial Surveillance spotted yet another 2-metre white shark just around the headland at Bherwerre just before noon.

These recent shark sightings have put fear in the locals of Jervis Bay with questions about what the authorities are going to do about it.

For now, the authorities are urging people to please be careful if you’re planning on going anywhere near the beach this week.

‘A True Gentlemen’ Wollongong Local Dies Surfing in Bali

Wollongong local, surfer and musician; Jae Haydon has tragically passed away in Bali following a surfing incident where his body was found washed up on a beach.

Wollongong surfers say he was well known in the local surfing community and an excellent musician.

Jae Haydon was surfing in Uluwata Beach on Monday when reportedly a wave knocked him off his board and he disappeared into the surf. Later on, that evening, a body believed to be Haydon’s washed ashore at Pedang Pedang that evening.

Jae’s sister, Heidi Haydon, said in a text: “My mum and I are feeling the love from all and know that you would understand we would appreciate privacy at this time.”

There has been a flood of tributes by friends and family on social media to the ‘amazing guy taken too soon’.

In 2015, Mr Haydon recorded a cover song each day for 30 days as part of a fundraiser, Sing for Spinal Cord Injury, aimed at raising $10,000 for the spinal cord rehabilitation centre Sargood. His sister, Heidi, was left paralysed from the chest down after a drug-affected driver ran her motorbike off the road in 2009 which has brought this cause very close to his heart.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help “afford the costs to bring Jae Haydon’s body back home” and “give him the best send off and celebration of life”
