Re: Hello everybody :)

Icy Rivers are frozen, golf of Finland is open only for big ships following ice-breackers making way to commercial ports, maybe there're possibilities for sailing in the Black Sea I just do not know.
Dreaming about warm seas. Just paid the charter in Croatia end of April - beginning of May. Now busy with preparing pasage plan. Reading cruising forum

I thought maybe it was a Russian-run outfit... We got equainted with them at French boat shows, but they run mostly FP and Bavaria charter/sales business out of Croatia and Spain. You're going with a different company, and they look very nice.

Glad to see you're accumulating your miles The weather should be nice by the time you get to the Med.

Take care

Thank you. Next Sunday I'll be in France (hopefully I'll get the visa!) Marseilles for 1 week journey training for sailing . As they say in France "Vivement le Dimanche!" And long live the bouillabaisse!

You still have one week to get the visa. And don't forget the croissants... fresh... buttery... light... sigh.

What does the training include?

Well, they said that it will include everything that a watch may need to train. I'm not sure that I need it - the most important is that I have one more piece of practice before the charter
