Today we meet Academy student – Sive Maholwana – and hear from him what has made him fall in love with sailing.
I first heard of sailing from a family friend named Sethu. He came to house at hokisa and he started speaking about the sport of sailing and I was interested. So I wanted to learn more about sailing and Sethu explained what it was and the more he told the more I was interested.
So I asked him if I could join him one Saturday morning and once I was there I never wanted to leave. It was an amazing experience and I’ve been coming back ever since.
Being in the water is really a relieving experience and the more time I spent on the Makatini boat, the more I learnt about sailing.
I learnt of things I never new existed and after a long commitment to the sport of sailing I got the feel of the boat.
Me and a couple of people got to go to the STCC maritime course, which was amazing and that’s my story with sailing.
It’s a good story
