Stephen Golliker - A life Under and Over the Ocean

Stephen grew up in South Africa, and has been involved in sailing all his life. He’s raced Dinghies, J-Class, and much in between.

He was privileged to take part in the training of the South African dinghy racing 49er team, when the country rejoined the Olympic movement, in 1992.

He also spent several years in the South African navy, as crew in warships, submarines, and a replica caravel from 1488.

Come and hear how the images relate to the career of this well established long-term sailor, and gain some insight on how sailing boats have developed over the years.
