Greetings from down under!

My partner has grown up on the water and owned numerous boats as most kiwis do; however I am just learning to sail, currently on a Raven 26.

The name Clewless came about due to my lack of sailing knowledge and the play on words, but I have a sense of humor so I went with it.

We are looking at purchasing a Jeanneau 54DS between now and April 2018 somewhere in the Med to escape the winter and spend 6 months cruising and the other 6 months put the boat in storage.

I am in research mode and came across this forum so I'm hoping to pick the brains of people that have or are currently sailing in the med for information.

I am really excited about our future plans and want to be prepared both on and off the water.

If you are in the Med between April and October 2018, we hope to meet you. Will advise the name of boat when we make the purchase.

Cheers!

Re: Greetings from down under!

Welcome aboard CF, Clewless. Soon enough you will have clews. Lovely country you live in.

I'm sure the members in the Med will clue you in to where they are, as well as being positioned to answer questions as they arise.
