Our New Adventure

we plan to- purchase a sailboat and cruise the south pacific mainly around the fijian islands in the next 3-4 years. We are starting from the bare butt bones basics and know nuthin! Any ideas from you well seasoned sailors out there? We have been to Fiji many times and love the Islands there.. Are very excited about our new adventure.. Tony is taking a radio class to get his ham license and we will go at this one class at a time! Laurie and Tony

Re: our new adventure

In simple terms; read, study and hang around boats and boating places. If you are really hooked just immerse yourself in all things boating in any way you can. Charter or crew for other boaters. Will hands, even beginners are often needed to help deliver a boat from here to there.

Read this forum and ask more questions.

Have fun.

The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
