Hello from Barcelona!

Hello mates! I've been watching this forum and It's Super interesting! My name is Aleix Gaintza and I live in Barcelona, ​​aboard my Nantucket Clipper MkIII, along with my wife, my dog ​​and my cat. I am a merchant seaman and I work in a sailing school, teaching astronomy and practical lessons of sailing. We are owners from two years ago, and we took all this time preparing the boat for long cruises. Although it is 32 feet, it is a very well built boat and gives us great confidence. It is rigged in Yawl / Cutter. During all this time we have been adding some important equipment to the ship, solar panels, wind turbine, water treatment plant, new sails, new engine, a reinforced rigging, etc. Our plan is to follow our dreams of Sailing a round the world. We plan to set sail sometime this summer from Barcelona to the Canary Islands. It will be very interesting finding in this forum people who know routes that we have never sailed, interesting places, people, experiences ... Thanks to all!
We've a website: Abordodelinfinito.com (in spanish)

Regards!

Gainza
