(King of the East Coast)


Growing up on the South Coast, Chris always aspired for the marine industry and once he'd come to terms with his failure to get a place in the Liverpool Team, he knuckled down to his degree in Maritime Leisure Management.  His knowledge and hands on learning started at the award winning Lymington Yacht Haven. For over 2 decades Chris has managed Gillingham Marina, recipient of 5 gold Anchors and the premier yacht basin on the Medway. He has a commercially endorsed licence and broad ranging experience of the river and all activities upon it.
