Born and bred on the South Coast of England, Chris learned to sail from a very early age, going on to race dinghies competitively around Europe and taking family sailing holidays around the Greek Islands. Life on the water is in his blood and whether it’s spending a weekend on the family yacht, “Bright Oyster” or taking to the waves windsurfing, there’s nothing he likes more than to get out in the elements during his time off. And when the conditions aren’t quite right for any of the above, then Chris is more than likely to be enjoying a round on the local golf course or a game of squash. Having worked in a marina during weekends at college, Chris’s professional yachting career officially began at the age of eighteen when he joined his first yacht as a deckhand. A year and a half later, he returned home to start his BSC in Marine Technology and after completion in 2005, went straight back to yachting. Destined to work on yachts long term, Chris continued his studies to obtain an ‘MCA Master of Yachts up to 3000GT License’. Having lost count of the times he has crossed the Atlantic, Chris has cruised both the Mediterranean and Caribbean extensively, as well as the Baltic, Indian Ocean and West and East Coasts of the United States. Chris’s extensive knowledge and experience mean that he can easily recommend many exciting destinations. His passion for the water reinforces his desire to see others enjoying the pleasure of a holiday at sea. You can be guaranteed that Chris will put his all into making your stay on board LADY JOY the holiday of a lifetime.
