Hi Everybody, I'm new to the forum and hopefully I'm posting
this in the right place!
For a few years now my wife and I have been toying with the idea of selling the house, getting a boat and spending a few years cruising around the Caribbean
Now that we’re reaching our mid forties, we’d like to move to the next step and spend at least a week living aboard
. Maybe even a few times, a week here and then another week a few months later etc…..
We say “Catamaran” because we’ve been on Mono-hulls as well and a Catamaran
is what we’d like to end up with.
We live in Vancouver, Canada
. We have taken our first sailing certification
course, and have been out a few times since. We are definitely “novices”.
Sailing around Lions Bay on a 36 foot Mono-hull with 6 other people doesn’t’ really give us a good idea of what living aboard
We’re not strangers to the Caribbean
; we spent seven years working onboard Carnival Cruise
Lines and also lived in Bermuda
for a year.
We’re honest, hardworking and are not looking for a luxury charter
where people are waiting on us hand and foot. We have no problem pulling our own weight and helping out. In fact we’d like to do so.
We just really want to get out on a Catamaran and see if this is something we’d really like to do.
We’re looking at Chartering companies but thought we’d try here on the forum as well.
We’d much rather spend some time with people who are actually doing it.
If anyone is interested in having us onboard (for a fee of course) or knows of someone who would be interested please contact us and we’d love to discuss it further.
Ideally we’d like to try somewhere we’d be interested in going ourselves (the Caribbean or around Florida) but we are open to other places as well.
Thanks in advance!
