He crewed and skippered on many boats in the IOR, MORC and PHRF fleets gaining notoriety for his helming and tactical skills.

In 1999 Chris and his wife Marilyn moved to Seattle (he missed the English weather?!). He continued to work as a sail consultant and has won many of the major events in the Northwest. This year he decided to join the Ullman Sails team and head up the Seattle sales and service loft. He brings an extensive knowledge of sails and deck/rig  hardware to our team and a friendly face to the local sailmaking scene.
