ABOUT THE PHIL RENOUF MEMORIAL LECTURE
This annual lecture series brings members of the Australian National Maritime Museum and Sydney Heritage Fleet together.
Phil Renouf was the much-loved and highly respected leader of Sydney Heritage Fleet, the volunteer-based organisation that specialises in the restoration and operation of important historic vessels and has its offices, library and non-floating collections housed in the Australian National Maritime Museum’s Wharf 7 Maritime Heritage Centre. Phil led Sydney Heritage Fleet at a critical time in its development, and this annual lecture series was inaugurated to honour his significant contribution to Australian maritime heritage.
