I am a professional working photojournalist. I did everything from commercial fishing
to Ironworking. Back in the 70's and 80's before the cost of dockage went sky high I lived on sailboats. I have been away from living aboard
and cruising for years but can now start to collect retirement
and thinking about the past and getting out of the rat race
- I had my fill.
I have talked with several editors of travel publications and they are nibbling on the bait. I am planning on sailing the Caribbean
and writing articles about the places I stop. The first place I am thinking about is Cuba
. Currently taking Spanish classes
so I won't have a communication problem when I visit places in the Caribbean
A lot has changed since I was last cruising. The electronics
and all are different now and I suppose a lot of places have been commercialized. Anyway, I plan to buy a sailboat this spring and sail it this summer. I would start cruising 2010.
