My introduction to sailing was nothing short of fantastic. I started sailing at the age of 8 in South Africa when my school principal included sailing as an official school sport. Right through school and college, sailing and rugby was my life. Our Christmas family holidays always involved traveling around the country as I raced in various Provincial and National regattas, collecting hardware along the way. If I was not on my laser, I was offshore racing in 30ft swells along the African coastline generally on foredeck duty.
Moving to Vancouver in 1994 only fueled my love for sailing as it was the first time I actually went cruising. I loved it. I’ve enjoyed the last twenty years teaching, racing and cruising in the beautiful waters of British Columbia with my wife and three kids.
After moving to Vancouver, I became a certified ISPA sailing instructor. I found myself helping past and present students, friends and even strangers choose the boat of their dreams. It became pretty obvious that this was my calling and in 2011 I sold my retail business and became a yacht broker as a profession.
I take great pride in ensuring a seamless experience for my clients throughout the purchasing or selling cycle. My objective is for you to enjoy boating and not to worry about the transaction: leave that to me.
