Ciao !

Hello everybody, I just discovered this site, and I am really happy to have found a place so full of useful infos and friendly sailors! I am looking forward to join this community.
I am an Italian traveler on the road for 6 years. My love for the sea and freedom and my dislike for moving/packing/leaving a home behind made me wonder:
Am I too young and unexperienced to go Liveaboard and cruise the coasts of the world?
Well, you got to start somewhere... and this seems to be a fantastic place to learn and make the best of the other users experience.
Keep it up with the great posts, I will be following!

G'day and welcome.
Don't leave things too long. Remember the sailor saying that 'it's better to be on a boat in the Pacific dreaming of a cozy fire at home, than sitting in front of a cosy fire and dreaming of a boat in the Pacific.........'
Don't take life too seriously. No ones going to make it out alive......Go see our blog at

Re: Ciao !

Ayla80: I traveled the sea for 4 years when I graduated school. I stopped and saved to buy a nice boat. Now I have a nice boat and not the time to go sailing. YOu are not too young.

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
