heyho

heyho,

i'm Uli from germany. since september '17 i am in the mediterranian sea with my 44 years old - i am two years older - Dutch steel sailing vessel “Kiruli“, long keeler, 35 ft.
Came to here (at the moment: Sicily) through the rivers and canals from germany without any experience in sailing/boating. But i did it ;-)
Want to stay in the Med for two ore three years and then cross the Atlantic Ocean.
Sorry for my bad english...
Best regards,
Uli

Re: heyho

Uli,

Hi and welcome to CF. Don't worry about the language thing, you English is certainly better my German and we are more than willing to help those whose first language isn't English.

Keep an eye on the destinations forum, there are a few folk asking about European canals at the moment.

Pete

Re: heyho

Hi, Uli!

Where in Sicily are you, and how long will you stay? Our boat is in Marina di Ragusa.

Cheers!

Steve

Re: heyho

Welcome Uli - I would love to see a picture of your boat. We once met a gentleman in the Bahamas with a steel sailboat from the Netherlands - the boat was a beauty!
