I am an Australian and have been living in Stockholm, Sweden
for the past 9 years. Last year I bought a Searay Sunsport 220 for speeding around the waterways here, but now I am bored of it and want to reacquaint with sailing. So the boat is up for sale
and I am planning/hoping/dreaming
to by a yacht next spring/summer.
Whilst the summer here can be nice, it is not hot enough for me, so the boat I want to buy will be kept in Greece
. I'll be looking for something around the 37 foot mark, possibly ex charter
and will plan to eventually export it to Australia
I'm not sure if I would ever consider trying to sail it all the way to Australia
, but I am certainly dreaming of sailing the ARC
it from the US.
It' has been just over 20 years since I regularly sailed, which was on a Columbia
27 and a Columbia
34 back in Melbourne, so I have a lot to catch up on on in the sailing skills department
I'm sure I'll end up asking a few dumb questions, so bare with me
