Born in Hackney London Chris Francis always believed he was a seafarer in a previous life. When the opportunity arose he decided to test this theory and in 1995 departed England to sail across the World with his wife and two young children. Just to make the voyage more interesting he chose do this on a replica of a hundred year old yacht with no modern equipment. His journey culminated in the Everest of sailing by rounding Cape Horn. Now living at The Boathouse Bright he would love to tell you a few stories that occurred on his adventure.
