hmmmmm......anybody need a "tax write off" ?
I am not going to ask Rafi, but it could be that his work won't let him or he can't afford to take the time off, because he is better off working and paying someone else to move his yacht. Or even he feels he isn't up to such a huge voyage, it's a fair old trek across the Med before even getting into the Atlantic.
The good news is there is a whole cottage industry in delivering yachts around the world, which enables a lot of sailors to earn a living enjoying what they do. Although for a delivery
like this it will be hard work, the Med could be hours of motoring with a few nasty squalls thrown in for good measure. The Atlantic trades may have gone by then so more graft.
We have friends who did the ARC
a couple of years ago. They couldn't afford to be away from work for more than 6 months, so sailed across and did the Carib, then had a crew bring the yacht back across to England
