Hello from South France !

Hi boys and girls,

I'm a 39 years old sailing boy.
Use to do a lot of regatta all year long in mediterranean gulf near Perpignan and the spanish border on a friend 's Benet' First 40,7.
And I had an Oceanis 393 that I 've sold 6 month ago.
Me and my litlle family will cruise now on a brand new Fountaine pajot Lipari41.
It will be "summer-cruising time" between Corsica, and Balearic Island.

Hand-shake to all from south France!

PS: sorry for my english, I can speak quite well but writting is much more difficult for me !

Re: Hello from south France !

Your English is fine -- better than some of our native speakers! Welcome to CF! We all look forward to reading more about you, your boat, and your adventures. Put some photos in your gallery and tell us more about yourself. Cheers.

Oliver hi and welcome to CF. Good to have someone in the Med on here, I am sure there will be questions that your local knowledge can help with.

Thanks Dockhead and Pete !

Yes sure Lion's gulf is a quite special sailing area ( wind can be from F1 to F7-8 in less than 15 minutes. ) but the area is wonderfull !
cheers

Hi! Sounds like you have a nice life on the other side of the pond. Congrats on the new boat too. Looking forward to seeing some pix of the boat and sail grounds.

Re: Hello from South France !

Hi Oliver66:

Welcome aboard. Hope to be in your part of the world this summer. The family and I are trying to arrange the purchase of a boat in Europe and then plan on cruising the Med for the summers for four or five years. Right now the plan for the first summer is South of France. Nice Toulon St Tropez maybe Monaco and Italy as well.
