By Chris @ Yachts Unlimited

Chris has done what most urban weekend sailors only dream about. In 2008, following Hurricane Ike, a global economic downturn and a frustration with the hamster wheel of life, he quit his Fortune 500 day job and left for the Caribbean. Having both a USCG 100T Masters Captain’s license and a RYA Yachtmasters 200T ticket, he was hired quickly by one of the largest names in Charter Yachts, The Moorings. There he spent 2 years running Catamaran charters, showing guests the best spots in the British Virgin Islands, Abaco, Bahamas, and St. Marten/St. Barths. He also spent some time in the Megayacht world in Ft. Lauderdale, Portland OR, and Chicago’s Great Lakes before returning to Houston.
