Hello I have been reading the forum for a few months and now that I am taking sailing lessons
it seems like a good time to start participating in the forum. I live in NZ and studing towards a business degree. I am currently looking at buying
my first yacht, around 19' to gain some experience in and then move onto something a little bigger a few years down the track and maybe do some water
sailing after I have a considerable amount of expereince and many years under my belt.
I have one question hopefully someone can help me out with, what is the minimum size a boat can be to be classed as category 1 in NZ. By no means am I wanting to get a boat that can tackle oceans just yet but I like to day dream about future adventures and possible boats.
Thanks and I am lookinng forward to participate in this forum and continue learning
