Hi all! I am finally making it to Briton!
I'm hoping to connect with some on the board who have experience in sailing in the UK, and in training schools.
I hope to become a more accomplished sailor, and possibly buy a boat
to sail around the isles, and Europe
My 1986 London trip from Germany
to the UK was cancelled by the Chernobyl incident. Terrible sorrow in my heart for the local Chernobyl people. They really suffered!
Will travel across the Atlantic from NYC
to start a tour of the UK. Courtesy of Norwegian Cruise Ship
So I signed up for a RYA Dayskipper course in Southampton
, 5 day live aboard the boat
with Solentboattraining.co.uk. They look like a great school
This will give me a chance to get experience in tidal waters.
Most of my experience has been lakes, or costal ocean out of Southern California
It will also give me the ICC
of competence) that seems to be a big deal for renting
in the UK/EU/Med. I can also complete the British VHF
course, although I have a HAM amateur license
I then want to look for a sailing cat, Heavenly Twins 27, or Catalac
8, 9, or 10m boat with dreams of sailing to the canals of France
and the Netherlands
. Then on to the Med and Greece
