Chris Stanmore-Major (CSM) is an extremely experienced sailor and sail training instructor. As of the end of 2018 he has sailed approximately 320,000Nm (more than the distance to the moon) in yachts ranging from 45' - 150'.

This milage includes two races around the world - once as the skipper of 'Qingdao' the Chinese entry in the 2009/10 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and once solo in 2010/11 in the Velux 5 Oceans Race sailing ‘Spartan’ an IMOCA Open 60

Successfully finishing the V5O made Chris only the 182nd person ever to complete a solo sailing circumnavigation of the world, which when we consider 4500 people have summited Everest and 450 have been into space makes for entry into a very select sailing club.

Chris is the founder & CEO of Spartan Ocean Racing & Training Ltd based in Nova Scotia, Canada a sail training company dedicated to opening up opportunities for sailors of all skill levels and backgrounds to access pedigree offshore sailing vessels and complete 'bucket-list' ocean crossings and race events. Spartan is also focused on developing excellence in seamanship, advanced safety awareness and consulate professionalism in those engaged in all activities on the water.  

The 'Mariner' videos are focused on the restoration of our Open 60 'Hellcat' and include wide ranging discussion  on a range of practical offshore sailing topics, hands on tuition from CSM at sea of the huge number of hard skills required to be self reliant on a boat at sea and all the normal stories, tall tales and half heard song lyrics you might expect from someone with 20 years offshore sailing under their belt.
