Greetings from Cape Town


I have a big dream of going sailing so my wife have no other option but to join me in
. I am in a early stage of researching for the right boat and all the rest.

I would like to get used 35-45 mono offshore sailing boat. 55 foot catamaran would be nice but my bank manager doesn’t agree with this one. He just doesn’t understand that it is just numbers on the screen.

I am from Croatia but last 5 years I have spend in London, England. At the moment I am on an overland trip around the world until my money runs out. At the moment we are in South Africa. After the trip we will go in to 'saving' mode until I save enough money to do the same with the boat.

Thanks’ all

Aloha Ivan,
Welcome aboard! You need to save money to buy a boat then travel in the boat.
