Captain Chris Wren

Transforming Lives Through Sail-Training for over 25 years!

As a captain with over 25yrs experience, my role is primarily to navigate a sailing ship from A to B, having prepared the vessel with fuel, food, water, maintenance and repairs. But, much more than that, I undertake to teach trainees everything to do with being a full crew member on an ocean going voyage or coastal sail.

In more recent years my role has become more of a consultant, advising ship owners and managers how to set up new sail-training missions, help them decide on their target clients or how to find funding or  to expand existing missions and solve problems including avoiding dangers or risking possible disasters.

I now own T/S Britta and am preparing her for a new era as a modernised sail training ship.

Available to Christian charities on an expenses-only basis. You can support my work through a donation to my Stewardship account.

Although my vocation is to help individuals by providing a sailing adventure, create fellowship, relieve painful memories, challenge and ‘grow’ to another level; others have come to help me exactly when needed. A year ago Read more…
