Our mission is a passion
Shane Granger (1948 – until his luck runs out) fell in love with sailing when he was seven years old. Having worked as an advertising photographer, copywriter, boatbuilder, director of museum ship restoration and bush pilot, he always comes back to the sea.
Shane has almost half a million sea miles, including thousands of miles on a brigantine he salvaged in West Africa and once single-handedly sailed across the Atlantic without an engine or functioning rudder.
After crossing the Sahara Desert with a Tuareg caravan and being kidnapped by bandits in Afghanistan his greatest ambition is to enjoy the healthy benefits of monotony and boredom. Shane currently lives on an ancient wooden sailing boat with his partner Meggi Macoun.
