Hello from Switzerland

We're the SlowTourists, a couple preparing for our grand voyage. We don't have our boat yet, still looking. In the past 8 years we've sailed many multihulls throughout the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Red Sea, North Sea, Andaman coast of Thailand, English Channel and in 2014 crossed the Atlantic from La Rochelle to Martinique. Now searching for the right boat and we've been finding lots of great ideas and inspiration here on this forum.
Look forward to exchanging ideas with you all!

Slow, welcome to CF and good luck in your search. finding the right boat can be frustrating... took us three years to find this one!

Re: Hello from Switzerland

Hey Jim, I'm sorry to hear that Ann's eyes need shore repair. I hope she is recovering quickly, and that it won't slow either of your excellent contributions to this forum.

Hi Jim, had a momentary gasp when I read your message. No, not because you managed to find your boat so quickly! Been lurking here for 2 years now and of course have read many of your and Ann's comments and advice on various threads. You come across as a great couple and generally allround wonderful people! So am particularly touched by your welcome on here.
Sorry to hear Ann is having health issues and wish a speedy recovery.
