Hi from the UK

hi all!
i've recently started to think about sailing, my friend and i were discussing in the near future to sail around the uk for starters.
i have some experience in sailing from long ago but have some questions to what size boat would be adequate for sailing around the uk, living on for months at a time and the costing to start doing this.

looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi, Borgo.

Can't help with the 'round UK question, but I can point you to some earlier discussions Click on this link: cruising in small boats. Have a good read, and feel free to ask more questions. The more specific the questions, the more likely you'll be to get useful answers.

And, welcome to Cruisers Forum!

Aloha Borgo and Welcome aboard!
I can't think of better site in which to find your answers. Sorry I don't have any.
Kind regards,
