Craig was 10 years old when started his life on the water sailing dinghies in South Africa, first a Mirror on Benoni Lake and then a Carioca out of Lake Deneys Yacht Club on the Vaal Dam. 

At 16 and living in Vancouver, he and a friend bought an Enterprise which they sailed out of Hollyburn Sailing Club after which there was no stopping his passion for the sea.  Craig has  owned and skippered yachts (both sail and power) in waters in and around the Cape coast of South Africa, Western Canada, Mauritius, Mozambique and the US Virgin Islands.

One of Craig’s most memorable experiences in his yachting life was building and sailing a Samoa Van De Stadt 47 with his father who was also a passionate yachtsman. 

After spending most of his life in an executive corporate environment, Craig is now living out his passion for boats by building new relationships with clients and helping them find their dreams on the water.
