Cowes Lifeboat Station

Chris Ratsey

Chris joined the RNLI in 2013 – having sailed for over 50 years, including the disastrous 1979 Fastnet Race, and watching the lifeboats being built in Cowes as a child, he wanted to ‘give something back to this wonderful service’.

He is now retired, but Chris used to be a sailmaker by trade and owned three successful yachts. He enjoys cycling and thinks of himself as an amateur archaeologist!
