Hello Everybody!

I'm a newbie, not only in this community but at the sailing world! I have some experience in motorboating but no nothing about sails. I guess I will grab help from you guys more then I can give back

My dream is to buy a boat next year. Up to now, I'm interested in cats, which are way too expensive!, and E40s, of which I recently fell in love with.
Sailing zone would be the Caribbean and maybe, one day, cruise the Mediterranean, too. ...I know, I'm a bit of a dreamer...

Goodbye!

Great things start with dreams. Great things finish with too much dreaming.

Awesome variety from cooked on hot rocks to international cuisine.. if your a serious foodie (and I'm not talking pig outs.. just quality) W. France, N. Spain, Portugal, Madeira and the Azores will keep you very happy.. and I'm told the Fish is unbelievable
Don't eat it myself..

Re: Hello Everybody!

That does sound good Boatie, and yes, I'm a foodie.

But, oh dear, what if the OP isn't thinking food & was just considering those lovely Caribbean beaches?

Halaveli... sorry if we side-tracked you. Welcome again.

Re: Hello Everybody!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
There are many many boat designs to fall in love with. You just have to pick the one your budget supports.
Oh, and sailing lessons would be good.
