Well I am sure our story is typical.
We are early 50's. I stated to race
dinghies when I was a kid. I still do, and race
an RS400 at the local gravel pit. Audrey sacked that off as the boat kept killing her (probably my fault!).
We are keen RYA Day Skipper
types with a good glut of Greek, Turkish and Croatia
sailing both in flotilla and bareboat
form.... both short handed and with kids
as crew. We also have some UK waters experience out of Southampton
Plymouth and Oban. We make sure we sail around 2 weeks every year.
We stay humble and we reef in early!
This helped us just recently where we chartered in San Francisco
Bay. Let me tell you it blows under the Golden Gate!
Anyway... its time to dream about bigger and longer periods. Work is freeing us up and we have some cash..... maybe... if I can get sign off from "The Boss"..... A plan is emerging.
I am going to have questions.....!
