I am here to search for as much info as possible. I am 40 and intend circumnavigating the world with my family
, beginning next year (if that's possible!!).
We've bare-boat chartered a few times in Wales, I'm RYA day skipper
qualified and I've helped on a couple of deliveries including a 15-day passage
to the Azores
. I hope to be on another in May delivering a boat from Antigua
to the UK. All in aid of building miles and experience.
I find the physical side of things; sell house, buy boat, get experience, buy provisions and head
out of port simple enough to deal with though the bureaucratic side of things gives me a headache without having looked in to it in too much depth
....IS IT REALLY ALL THAT BAD: visa's, paperwork for boat, paperwork for persons on board etc. Someone please tell me I'm worrying about nothing!!!!
Anyhows, nice to be here amongst like-minded people. Hope to find all the answers to my questions on this site and maybe forge some friendships along the way.
All the very best,
