His life conditions were typical of many South Africans, but his life story is not. Growing up in poverty in an informal settlement, he was introduced to sailing at the Izivunguvungu school of sailing. His determination and skills saw him competing in 2 Olympic Games in the 470 class. He is considered one of SA’s top sailors across a range of dinghy and keelboat classes
