About this site

This site is about a boat and her skipper.

I bought my previous boat Dansa after becoming a little hooked on sailing. I was a novice really when I bought her and you could say that I learnt to be a sailor in her. She was a great little boat and we went many places together I learnt many lessons from my nervous first steps as a skipper to my first solo sails to our circumnavigation of Ireland and to becoming a yacht master. She did me proud and I sailed over 10,000 miles in her.
After 10 years of ownership it was perhaps time for a change. Tentatively I put her up for sale and was surprised how quickly a buyer came forward. It meant that the summer 2012 I had no boat. By all accounts I didn’t miss much that summer. I wasn’t even sure that I would get another boat, but I guess over the past 10 years the salt water had seeped into my blood too much, there were still things that I wanted to do in sailing so I started looking for a replacement.
The result is Sea Bear.

Plans for the future – well a summer sailing around Britain seems like a thing to do and then maybe south perhaps time to see more of the world. We’ll see….

  1. HURRAH! You made it across the Atlantic – well done Chris!!

    Just wondering if the odd email I’ve sent from time to time has ever reached you….? Well. they’ve not been THAT odd! No doubt you’ve got far more to do than send replies to landlubbers such as meself, fair enough, but it would be good to get a brief acknowledgement otherwise I’m thinking maybe they’ve been sent to an email address you’re no longer using. If you are there, and get to read ’em now and then, I’ll keep going as and when I get a bit of time here in the library.

    Big hugs from Wendy xxxx

  2. yea sorry have received your emails but have so little time on internet, and often difficult of access – have to use wifi from a bar or cafe so generally updating the blog uses up all the time that i have no time to answer individual emails sorry again but I do appreciate you sending them so do keep it up and when and if I get to spend a bit longer in one place I hope that I will be able to answer Love Chris xx
