after 8 years or so of flotillas, charters, shorebased & practical training, crossing the English Channel
at night in a gale hasn't put us off (just the opposite) and we are counting down to our retirement
and semi retirement
to enable us to buy a boat and become winter live aboards in the caribbean
from winter 2012 - if all goes to plan.
I am enjoying reading the very informative threads on this site and look forward to picking the brains of some of you experienced folk - and interested to read the thought processes of other newbies!
There seems to be a great community spirit and I look forward to becoming part of that
