Hello to all on this forum.
I have just joined the forum. I live in the UK. I got into yacht sailing three years ago and have sailed over 500 miles since. I have a few RYA qualifications.
I have spent the last 12 months day dreaming of owning a yacht. Unfortunately on the South Coast of England
where I live you can buy a yacht with the small change in your pocket. But you need to raise a bank loan to afford the mooring
fees! Sailing is a bit too popular in this part of the world.
So I have gone off that idea and I guess I will stick with chartering for the time being.
I am in the process of joining a local yacht club. Most of my sailing this year will probably be crewing
for other members of the club.
I am going to the Carribean sailing for 2 weeks from 11 January.
Anyway, I look forward to some interesting correspondence.
