Hi all !
Was on here before but been away for a while living a boring life. But have a new gf and a new plan that I thought some of you guys could help with. We are going to buy a boat with the plan of sailing to the med for the summer. Now we are both amateur ! I would say compleat amateur but it's a dream we have and that we will follow to completion. So suggestions on boat and training needed !
So here's the questions.
What boat ? I like the look of the moody 27 or 28 and the mg spring 25. I like the lay out of it with the cabin
under the deck
. But as you may know both are quite a lot of money
so any suggestions on others with the same lay out would be a real help.
Training ? What training would you think we would need to compleat the journey.
I have sailed the life boat I live in now from Essex to Norwich in a force 6-7 it was hair raising but with a mix of a good Friends and shear ignorance made it in to south would ( that we now know a bi&&&&& of a port the enter. As we were told after by the border control and the rnli. But we made it safe and sound in the end if people are interested I will make another feed about the story it was an epic one. I have sailed on occasion and can put a sheet up and catch the wind
on the Norfolk rivers.
What's the best time to go and come back ?
I have read that the med is a bit harsh in winter and see myself in March April that the crossing home can be full on.
Please help me make a dream reality
