Since matriculating from Crawford North Coast in 2008, the sky certainly has not been the limit for Bleu Baggaley! Bleu’s lust for adventure prompted his journey that led him not only to achieve a Commercial Helicopter Licence but also spending a considerable amount of time in the air over the continent of Africa. The aerial view of Botswana, Zambia, the Caprivi, Zimbabwe and the Seychelles, shared with his father Norman, has been a ‘once in a lifetime experience’.
Whilst doing freelance flying in Cape Town, Bleu successfully completed a UCT Marketing Diploma course which has given him great insight into the entrepreneurial world and has led him to become a shareholder in an IT company with web-based design and application design in the gaming industry.
Bleu’s spirit of adventure has certainly not been quenched and his latest project is in the super yachting industry, which was fuelled by the contacts that he made through piloting. He now has aspirations of venturing out into the deep blue sea and being based in the USA on a yacht that is going to be exploring the world’s oceans. Bleu is still an avid surfer and accomplished kiteboarder and, in true North Coast fashion, can be seen deep in the barrel at his home break of Umdloti Beach whenever he is back in town. His most vivid memory of school life was getting on the bus every morning and walking past Mr. Nielson and getting the “have you done your homework?” look. Bleu really enjoyed the Crawford ethos and believes that his schooling in such a beautiful part of the world has carried over into the adventurous free-minded spirit that he has today.
