  • Description



    My name is Chris, I’m 35 years old male, Ive just sailed a yacht 9000 miles or 14,484km from Key West Florida through the Panama canal,across the pacific Ocean back to the mother land we call Australia. I’m looking at sailing from Noosa area from February (2024) taking the time to explore all the way up to the Whitsundays. Free diving and spending as much time out at the reef as possible. If this interest you hit me up.

    About myself...

    Before sailing I was a professional dirt bike racer, Ive seen many of hospitals and have broken most bones.. The sport was awesome to me though, Paying the way while also getting to travel and live around the world while competing at the highest level.

    Sailing came to me by luck. Being a motocross rider I did not grow up on or near the water. Five years ago I was looking for a different way to travel and live. Naturally I seen a yacht on the water and a spark was lit. Three weeks later I bought my catamaran " and off Hank(My Dog) and I went sailing without ever setting a foot on a sail boat or being out on the ocean!!! Talk about a learning curve.....

    Im an adventurous soul, Really like free diving, while spearfishing on the reefs. All in between sailing to new places..

    Fair winds
