PROFILE

Chris Bosanko-Green Boatbuilding Course Manager

Having grown up in Cornwall I have always had a love for the sea and dabbled in various water sports throughout my youth, with sailing being the biggest attraction.

After school, I studied construction at Cornwall College and worked as a Draughtsman in Truro until life took me in a totally different direction and away from Cornwall, for 24 years, while serving Queen and Country in both the Royal Air Force and Army.

A brief visit home to Cornwall was enough for me to fall in love with the place all over again; I made the decision to retire from the military, study towards my RYA Yachtmaster qualifications and having developed a passion for wooden boats, built using both traditional and modern methods, to pursue a new career as a boatbuilder.

I studied boatbuilding at Falmouth Marine School, while establishing my own small wooden boat building company. Later I was given the opportunity to return to Falmouth Marine School to teach the course I had previously studied. Having taught for many years in the military, I had always enjoyed teaching people new skills and was excited to be involved with educating and developing the next generation of Boatbuilders; for future years to come.
