Self-intro from "chrstjrn"

Hello to all,

My employer usually assigns me overseas, so I have lived in several countries. I dream about cruising when family and employment realities converge to make it possible-- probably in 2019. The trick will be to make financial reality converge with the other two. In the meantime, I sail a small folding boat-- I can't claim to be cruising, but I can work on my sailing skills. I have a good deal of flight training under my belt, which gives me several transferable skills. I look forward to getting more sailling training in the coming years and will try to find opportunities to crew on s/v s making passages.

Aloha Chrstjrn,
Welcome aboard! I was lucky enough to visit Switzerland in the 70s. I learned to sail on Lake Chiemsee in Germany. Switzerland is a very beautiful country. You have several large lakes to sail.
Kind regards,
