I truly enjoyed 15 years chartering in the Caribbean
.... as owner/operator of "Windwalker" based in the B.V.I's. Tortola.
Had sailed to Caribbean
in mid 1980's via south africa/Brazil in 33' 'ferro cement' "Mamselle"....... using a sextant
& celestial navigation
.& nearly missed St. Helena (south atlantic island)
Could write books
on all the adventures (good & bad!)thru living aboard
Sailed "Windwalker" to Cuba
for 6 months to set up a charter
business from Havana.....etc etc .
Reluctantly returned to Perth over 10 years ago to 'retire' on land & now getting bored with playing Lawn Bowls .......& hearing about peoples medical
Now recently divorced , & 'free' again hahaha.... so selling my home & starting to look for a cruising yacht to liveaboard
With our Oz dollar so strong ;seriously looking overseas; Med. U.S.A. S.E.Asia etc....
This is a great Forum for yachties & I am reading heaps of subjects to catch up on latest news /articles ...
cheers captjohn ....ex-" Windwalker"
