Hi Peter, Thanks for the advice. Hopefully we'll get up that way soon

Cheers, Aaron

We are about your age and sounds like we are quite like-minded! Ours was a natural progression from camping and exploring the great outdoors, swimming and snorkelling, eventually learning to scuba dive and travelling to fulfill our love of that sport. It seemed like learning to sail was the perfect solution - allowing us to combine our passions for travel, the ocean and adventure!

We moved aboard in April last year and "quit" our lives 6 months ago. We are currently cruising in Tasmania and hope to be up in the Whitsundays later this year! Might see you there!

All we can say is "just make it happen!" You'll never regret it!

If you can sail around Tassie, Sailing around the rest of the world is a piece of cake,
