I Admit I'm Now A Sailor

Hi everyone,

My first time on a yacht was two years ago when my partner convinced me that buying a Nicholson 32 would be an awesome idea. I learnt to sail in the English Channel but I'm still learning. I've only just started considering myself a sailor even though, since June 2014, the two of us have sailed from the UK to the Caribbean (after a tough Atlantic crossing!).

Now I'm in the cruising community proper I figured I better join up here! Caribbean cruising advice always welcome.
