Hi fellow sailors
I am interested in all things sailing and like others am dreaming of doing a little cruising . I own a J24 in Sydney
harbour and a laser both of which I race
I have done some ocean passages on the east coast
Bass strait crossings to Tasmania .
I am reaching retirement
age soon from teaching in High Schools and I will have time off to do some travelling.
I plan to work in the maritime industry and have completed the theory for the Master V commercial
vessels liscence in Sydney
I am thinking alot about doing some world passages for my ocean log for the Maritime qualifications either on commercial
vessels or on yachts.
Ultimately I hope to purchase
a bigger boat for cruising and have been looking at a number of designs for cruising .
I dont have the technical skills or gumption for boat building or outfitting so I will look around for sound second hand boats.
So Im using the cruising forums
to collect information about the cruising world so that when the time comes I will be better informed.
At the moment Im thinking of Joe Adams
designs in Steel
and 36 ft as a minimum for coastal cruising .
So there you have it.
