Hello sailors!

Have been looking at this site a couple of times (enjoyed the story of Tosser...) and thought its time to introduce myself.
My name is Toby, my companion/galley-slave is Verena. Our yacht is a Tosca39 (sloop). We're full time sailors for nearly 6 years now, started in Cape Town South Africa, sailed the Atlantic, then the Med up to Turkey, then the Caribbean, then back to Africa via the Azores, then Brazil and Argentina (we kind of love crossing the Atlantic!). We just returned from a long trip (nearly 1000 miles) up the rivers Parana and Paraguay, had a great time and went aground only a couple of times. We're soon off south along the Argentinan coast to Ushuaia and Cape Horn. Then the Pacific - its so big that we don't make plans...
