Just Getting Started!

Hey there.. Iíve joined to get as much information as possible prior to learning to sail..

There is a very high chance we (my family) will move to Cyprus in a few years and currently have access to a holiday home close to the coast in the new forest England.

Iím a high adrenaline fast car junkie and am thinking of selling all my toys to buy a nice boat to hopefully sail to Cyprus! We have a lot of family there so have connections for that side of things..

Glad to have found this community and I shall be doing a lot of reading prior to getting my tickets..

Thanks in advance!!

Paul

Re: Just Getting Started!

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Paul.

You do know that "FAST" sailing generally occurs at less than 10 MPH?

Re: Just Getting Started!

Welcome Paul! My first boat's name was "Magic Twanger." Probably no relation to you though.
