I'm Nigel - Hi

I sail when I can - 55 years old - I teach dinghy sailing. Grew up in the UK live in France. Fulltime Desk Job - Marreid to Catherine Two children. One day we might spent the first years of retirement sailing (there is so much world to see).

This summer we have one week flotilla sailing in Dalmatia with sunsail. I found your world looking for cruising guides to the area.

Take care

Fair winds & following seas

Re: I'm Nigel - Hi

Welcome Nigel.

Your story sounds like mine. Until recently, I coached a high school sailing team and still race dinghies occasionally myself. My wife and I are 55 and have two grown daughters who both still like to come with us on sailing vacations. We did finally buy a big boat - Beneteau 423 - that we plan to use for a get away in a couple of years. We enjoy cruising it in Southern New England.

Hopefully our paths will cross when we each set off someday.

Me three. The wife and I about 55 with mostly grown kids. Went from dinghies to a P31 cruiser 3 years ago and we're really enjoying the experience.

Welcome aboard, Nigel.
