CHRIS ROBERTS

After completing sailing course with the original Ocean Sailing Academy based in Durban in 2000, Chris decided to make sailing his career.

 

This is where his sailing adventure began. From sailing into the less explored locations on the African coast or the jet setters seaside resorts of the Mediterranean and Caribbean. After completing a successful Super Yacht career he decided to head back to South Africa to gain more experience along the challenging South African coastline.

 

This enabled Chris to enter into the Marine Research before returning to Ocean Sailing Academy Cape Town as the new Principal in 2014.
