Ahoy, we are Larry Smith and Lynda Dyane of USA-flagged Leopard
. We are aground in California
until next spring, when we will move aboard in Cartagena
and begin cruising the Mediterranean
among a growing list of acquaintances. We have a lot to learn from more experienced folks and hope eventually to contribute to the knowledge base ourselves.
For starters, we can vouch for Yacht Port Cartagena
as a safe, modern, inexpensive place for a cruiser, and the interesting town of Cartagena with its 2000+ years of history
, universities, and Spanish Navy
We still own our beloved Aloha 32, Pleamar
, in the San Francisco
Bay area. She deserves the appreciation and attention of a new owner, and reluctantly we will begin the search soon.
Other places we show up are the Yahoo Leopard
owners' forum, Seven Seas Cruising Association, and Multihulls4us. Larry has done most of the talking so far, and is the source of all of our errors.
Fair winds to all,
Larry and Lynda
