We are a family
of four seeking a 6 month home-for-boat exchange starting in Dec 2019 preferably in the Caribbean
. Our previous, pre-kid cruising experience includes West Coast
, Central America
, Western and Eastern Caribbean
, East Coast
US, transAltantic to Ireland
as well as some professional deliveries to Bermuda
We are not at a point of sailing away into the sunset, but want to offer our kids
(now 7 and 4) a glimpse of the majesty out there.
Our home is a 3 bed
room, 2 bath with a guest cottage in the back yard in the Santa Barbara, CA area and in Carpinteria, one of the last true remaining beach towns.It is an area of dramatic geology and beauty, where the mountains meet the sea and offers many draws, from sailing the Channel Islands just off the coast, to other activities that run the gamut from world class surfing to wine tasting, rock climbing, camping, paragliding,mountain biking, and so on. The beach is a bike ride away in this three brewery town (we work
at one!) and the school
is just around the corner, if you need one!
In any event, this is the first part of a long process, but which I submit to see what might be out there.
Cheers and thanks for your time.
