Something's Brewing

Howdy all

My partner and I have purchased our first Yacht and am pretty dam excited we have both had a dream to do some extended cruising. For me it will be a big learning curve as I have come from racing Nacra cats, with a couple of coastal races on a 36ft mono. My partner has done some cruising so she will be the skip .

I have the next year off and plan to chase surf in SE asia Over time I am sure I will have lots of questions but will try to put back what I can to the forum. It has already been helpful.

Cheers Alex

If you've raced cruising will be cake. There's a lot of ancillary stuff to pick up like anchoring, diesel maintenance, electricity, etc. But the sailing part you should have nailed. Good work!

Yeah its all that other stuff pointing something around a few cans is one thing but mooring and getting to the right place with a bottom still in your boat is another thing...only one way to find out I guess

Well, Felix, there's them as talks about it and there's them as does. You just became one of the doers. Nice that you feel comfortable giving your partner the skipper's slot. Not a lot of men do that easily. Good on you. Most of it is common sense. Some of it is not. Trust her.
