In December 2005 I left the UK to start a new life in Brisbane
,Australia, its a tremendous country with fabulous warm waters. I,ve been sailing in the UK intermittently for the past 5 years on small dingies, but its so cold. Having arrived here, and having experienced the warmth of the sailing communities welcome, the bug has really bitten, and am regularly crewing
on 36ft/40ft boats, just short costal trips in and around Brisbane
Therefore I,m now working towards my ambition. It is to fly to the US, purchase
a US registered 34ft/36ft boat, perhaps a Catalina
, unless advised otherwise, and then sail back it back to Aussie. It HAS to be a US built boat, as due to the recent free trade
agreement, there is no import
Having found your forum, after much trawling on the internet
, I,m very impressed and find that it could answer many of my questions, especially in conjunction with the RYA course I,ve recently completed.
Maybe in a few months time perhaps, hopefully I,ll be able to relate my experiences. But in the meantime I ask your forgivness whilst I ask endless questions.
