Just saying hello. I've visited other sailing sites and found them to be valuable in picking up tips etc so trust this will be the same.
Sue and I have a Hanse 461 named Swagman and this year sailed from the UK down to the Med - enjoyed every day of the trip and regretted getting back on a plane after 3 months sunshine - to go back to work!
Counting down the weeks until next spring when we'll pick up again on the cruising life and move onward from the Balearics further east that summer - in the meantime I'll get my fix by flying out ofr the odd long weekend.
I'll be coming to this site when we turn west and aim for the Caribbean
and USA in a few years time - and in the meantime will be picking your brains as needed.
