So great I came across CF

Hello everybody,

I hope you won't object having an Old Frenchie willing to board the CF. I promise I'll do my best to write English properly but be so kind and indulgent if it happens I don't. For sure it will happen.

I have sailed for a few months a 60' Ketch in Tahiti in the early 80s as a crew-member. This is the only sailing experience I have ever had. So say, I am just a wannabe. I might intend to purchase a sailing boat in the US and sail away in the Caribbean and later on to the Pacific Ocean. I know I shall appreciate your help on this project.

Speak soon..

Well, I have been staying here for three months. When I decided to move overseas again after a few years back in France I thought Asia and especially Cambodia might be the right place to take it easy. Eventually, I realized I missed something: action! I should travel to the US within a few weeks to look for a Westsail 32' and start again from there e.g. Northern America and Caribbean Islands. If you need any info get back to me.
