Well we finish up work this week and fly out from Melbourne on 19/12 arriving Istanbul
for a few days and possibly look at a few yachts there but haven't been able to find many that are not ex-charter but will keep looking.
There are a few boats around 44'-47' (eg Jeanneau
Vision 44 & Beneteau
46) we are looking at in Croatia
and possibly Greece
Depending where we purchase
, we will winter it somewhere within reasonable sailing distance and so a few posts on the forum relating to wintering are very useful reading especially regarding availability & price
back to Oz early January '14 and return for more adventures during the northern summer.
Been dreaming of this for years and it started to become a reality last year and now it is just weeks away.
