I've posted on a few threads so far, but figured I'd post here and officially introduce myself to the community at large. My wife and I have just signed the contract
for a Fountaine Pajot
Helia 44, which we will christen Starry Horizons
. The plan right now is to pick her up at the factory in France
in Oct/Nov of 2014, sail her back to Florida
for final commissioning with our dealer, and then we will take off to circle the world!
My wife and I both have our 100 Ton Masters License
and are upgrading from a MaineCat30 for this adventure. In our spare time, we enjoy captaining some of the dinner cruise
boats near us. I'm amazed at the knowledge on this forum and it just goes to show you can always learn something new, no matter how long you've been on the water
. I look forward to learning
from you all and sharing our experiences where we can.
All the best and fair winds!
