let's talk a bit about myself and my wife and 2 children
It started when i was 20 years or so, helping someone varnishing a BM 16 m2. It's a mahogany gaff rigged sailboat, i think 6 - 6,5 metres long.
After we sailed a lot with it (and with a Sail Horse), i bought my first wooden sailboat, a smaller one, but i liked it.
I filmed some boats last summer, this i more or less what i did then.
Ashore, people had stolen the rudder
etc. So allmost nothing left. Episode one exit.
Many many years later i met my wife, and i thought, let's buy another BM.
So we did. we sailed it a few years, but with 2 children
growing faster and faster, the sailboat was becoming too small. Exit episode two.
After that we chartered a Bavaria
, and then 'lightning stroke' more or less.
We decided to save money
, so we are (maybe) able to sail a Catalina Morgan 45
, or a Moody 42 CC, or a ..........
Yet we are reading lots of books
, doing some courses, and learn a lot at home ourselves. I makes fun to do that, but why is it taking so long before was can retire?
Well, we have to wait another 6 years at least.
Last summer we visited the Isle of Wight, UK. Man, how beautiful was that. I we could sail to such destinations later!! Here an impression of the Isle of Wight near The Needles and Freshwater Bay.
Are here more people around from the Netherlands
