Hello to you all and thankyou for the great welcome, I feel at home here already and am very glad I joined. I recently started on the YBW forum, which is full of chattering idiots who swamp the real boaters there and I was losing my interest in yacht forums
Yes I am English but live in Southern France. We did a lot of med cruising in the 70s with various boats and were based at Malta
, Andraitx, Grimaud, Isle des Embiez, Ibiza and finally the Club de Mar in Palma where we sold the last boat. We had at least one year mooring
in each of those and never paid more than £300.
We finally got to give it another go in 2003 and had a new Oceanis
311 delivered to Ginesta south of Barcelona
. Stuck there for 4 days until the boat was ready and the discos were going until 7.30 am. Not a good start and we realised that it was going to be different.
The big problem was that we didn't realise how difficult finding a mooring would be, so we have been in a Port à Sec and hardly used the boat. At last we have a place booked in Spain
so we are getting keen again.
