Shane Granger (1948–) has been in love with the sea since he was seven years old. Having worked as a radio DJ, advertising photographer, boat builder, director of museum ship restoration, and bush pilot, he always comes back to the sea.
Shane has traveled over a quarter-million sea miles, including thousands of miles on a square-rigged brigantine he salvaged in West Africa and once single-handedly sailed across the Atlantic without an engine or functioning rudder. After crossing the Sahara Desert with a Tuareg caravan and being kidnapped by bandits in Afghanistan, his greatest ambition is to find a comfortable niche where he and his partner, Meggi Macoun, can enjoy the healthy benefits of monotony and boredom.
He and Meggi currently live on the historic wooden sailing boat Vega. Since 2004, they have logged almost one hundred thousand miles delivering donated educational and medical supplies to remote island communities in Eastern Indonesia and East Timor.
