From an early age, Brian Ingpen walked the wharves and jetties of Cape Town harbour, stimulating his fascination with ships and their cargoes. Time on tugs and aboard ships as a schoolboy made shipping a focus that naturally led him to the South African Navy for his national service and three years with Safmarine. His career path led him into education that included time as Headmaster of Simon’s Town School and Pinelands High School. Combining his interest in shipping with his profession, he has played a role in developing the Lawhill Maritime Centre at Simon’s Town. He has written eight maritime histories his latest book will be available for purchase on the day. Should you wish to purchase his book, please bring cash.
