The Skipper  
Olav Stig was born in Göteborg, Sweden, were he grew up with sailing and ship building. Regatta Sailing was always one of his biggest passions and when he was 14 years of age he was youth champion dingy sailing. This prepared him for one of his biggest adventures. At the age of 16, he made his first Atlantic crossing in a 10 meter sailing yacht which led to many years of sailing in the Tropics. After travelling 35,000 sea miles he arrived in Holland in his self made sailing yacht and has been there ever since.

He became fascinated by the Dutch flat bottom ships. Being a foreigner these ships seemed quite exotic to him, with their side boards, shallow draught and large sails. Never had he seen such a thing anywhere in the world. The past 15 years Olav has participated in almost every regatta for this kind of vessel, adding it to his already impressive regatta experience with hi-Tec yachts at top level such as the Admirals Cup, Fastnet Race, W.K. I.M.S. etc


However, his first season as a skipper on the Maxima has been his best sailing experience so far. Six months of sailing everyday with happy and satisfied customers. Life could not get any better for Olav!
