Matej Stepan is a film director & producer who fell in love with sailing a couple of years ago. Nothing else gives you the freedom sailboats do.

Since the first day he stepped on a sailboat his life hasn't been quite the same. Sailing has seeped into all aspects of his life, from room decor to the topic of his debut feature film Arthur's Choice (which takes place on a yacht almost in its entirety).

Fuelled by love for sailing, Matej has slowly begun to learn how to sail and though he is still a relative beginner, he has circumnavigated the world in his mind a couple of times.

The plan is to do it in reality in a couple of years. Until then, he will keep sailing in the Mediterranean. Which is pretty great too, if you ask me.
