Tony has run his very successful businesses (and sailed all over the world) for over 35 years. He is well known and respected by the world's sailing community and business associates alike, as someone who is committed to his business interests, friendly, trustworthy & honest (to a fault) and who maintains exceptionally high ethics and standards. Five years ago, he scaled down his operations to his relatively small, very busy and popular store in the heart of the city of Durban. Tony is a "mine" of information on world cruising and is ALWAYS happy to assist when he can.

Assisted by: Tony is very ably assisted by Katherine ("Kat") in the store. She is extremely knowledgeable and becomes a friend to all she meets. 

Situated at 4 Fenton Lane in Durban, just a 3 minute stroll from Durban Marina and the yacht mole, the store is PACKED with charts and books and is a favourite 'raft-up' for both local and visiting sailors. Current weather forecasts and synoptic charts are printed and posted outside the store daily. Orders for charts, books and marine publications are processed and dispatched ALL OVER THE WORLD efficiently and without delay. Being a sailor, Tony understands the (always urgent) needs of cruisers around the world! "Arrive as a customer - leave as a friend".

Tony is currently "between sailing voyages". He has cruised all over the world - including a circumnavigation (see his SAILING LOGS) - his logs and articles were first published in 'SA Sailing'. He has also written a number of publications (Sailing Notes) to assist the increasing number cruisers now choosing to take the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town route instead of the Red Sea. (see BOOKS). 

Always feel free to contact Tony (or Katherine) for ANY local, East Africa or Indian Ocean & S Atlantic information - he is always happy to help if possible.
