Hello from Switzerland

Hi guys

Just crossed the 40 barrier and realised that I need to see the world before the last chapter of my life starts.

I stumbled across this site and have to say - Bravo ! - an extremely good forum with lots of know how to be discovered. Many thanks to you all which have been contributing to this site !

My plan is to get ready in the next few years for a "tour de world" with a cat and discover a lot of interesting places I have been dreaming of since I became a reader of National Geographic ... :-)

So lots of work ... learning real sailing, get a boat and do the job !

Regards
Zonker
