I've been scouting the forum for a few months and it's helped heaps.
2 months ago we purchased a Hunter
356 and are now learning
to sail on her. Even though we've spent every holiday for the last 10 years on boats (primarily for diving), we have never learnt to sail. We're having a complete love affair with our floating caravan
We've found an amazing instructor that has made it so much fun. There are no intentions to use her as a liveaboard
, though we have been lucky enough to stay on board every weekend so far and sometimes during the week, which has been great to get our 17 month old toddler used to it (he's great for pointing out danger
and certainly adds new dynamics to the challenge!).
Looking forward to exploring more of the East Coast
and all the beautiful coastline has to offer (our tiny sailor particular likes a watering hole that dishes out popcorn and coca cola which equates to a top mini break in his tiny eyes!!!)
