I am Robert, a belgian citizen living in Northern Italy
. I have an engineering beckground.
My boat is a Holman and Pye designed Oyster
406, a central cockpit sloop
, which I have now owned for 11 years.
I have sailed, in the Med mostly, for over 40 years. I also have some experience in French Polynesia
, in the Caribbeans, and in Venezuela
. In fact, the name " Australe" of my boat refers to the Australes Islands near Tahiti
My wife Yvette and I currently spend about six months a year sailing in the Aegean Sea and Turkey
I am most happy to join this very nice Forum, and I intend to contribute whenever appropriate.
