agog over Gage Roads

Action, drama, intensity: no, not the WACA or Julian Assange's life or even Operation Unite: it's all happening (or allegedly happening) on the beautiful island.

"A Perth magistrate wants an independent agency to investigate the officer-in-charge of Rottnest police station after finding the off-duty sergeant was the "aggressor" in a bar melee on the island," The West reports.

The Rottnest Island Authority is looking for a new Chief Information Officer: the gig pays $95,301 - $102,144.

The man (or woman) in the hot seat will be "...required to drive and implement ongoing transformational change, including transforming business systems, infrastructure, processes and technology into an integrated platform that meets organisational and business management, and reporting requirements."

What else? Kitesurfing! That French kite bullet has done it again, according to "Alex Caizergues stormed the inaugural Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton kitesurfing, held at Fremantle, Western Australia. The 32-year-old pro kiteboarder crossed the 19km Indian Ocean course in only 24 minutes and 34 seconds, around half the time of a typical voyage on the Rottnest Express ferry at an average speed of over 20 knots."
