Hello, New to the forum but have been following for a few days and enjoying it. My fiancee and I are both experienced sailors from offshore racing
to dingy racing
. I lived aboard for a few years while in college and both have completed an Atlantic crossing
together with a friend along with some additional formal sailing training and I have a 100 ton as well. We are in our early 30's and thinking about packing it up to cruise
She finished her postdoc last year in Biology and has been working for a small biotech the past year. I'm finishing up my postdoc this year in Physics with no real plans as to what I want to do.
We were both wondering if it seems logical to cruise
internationally and teach along the way in our respective fields.?
Mainly the idea would be teach for a year and learn the culture of where we are residing then cruise for a year.
Neither one of us have any student loan debt because we were both stipend in our departments and both have a half decent combined savings.
She has citizenship in Holland
and on a EB1 in the US. I have just have US citizenship.
Any advice or any other suggestions as to how we could make this happen would be greatly appreciated.
As for a boat purchasing budget
we are looking at about 100 - 150k with a 50% down payment and 2500 per month cruising budget
(not including the loan payment and refit). We allocated 25 - 40k for the refit
budget. Along with a 15k Emergency
