Chris grew up on the shores of Pittwater in northern Sydney and has always been a keen sailor. He studied science at university before deciding to change tack and gained two degrees in education and music at UNSW. Using his teaching skills he travelled extensively through out Europe and Australia before returning to Sydney. He is currently completing an electrical apprenticeship. He will be the deck hand on the trip to Vanuatu and hopes his wide range of practical skills come in handy on the voyage.
