Hi all, my name is Kerstin. I live on the West Coast
of NZ. I have three beautiful children
and one boat ('Tara'). Tara is relatively new (launched in 2005) but is a traditional wooden gaff rigged yacht. I had great plans to sail the world but a lack of money
and an uncooperative (is that a word?!) husband has put those plans on hold for a few years. BUT I refuse to give up on the dream. Am in the process of separating and doing some soul searching at the same time... current
theory is that living together ultimately destroys most relationships so my advice would be to live close but not together with your partner.... like on your own boats within dinghy
range! Tara is on the hard
but will be back in the water
soon (Greymouth to start with then will be based in Picton). I look forward to some interestiing and practical discussions here.
